Can I plant trees in the boulevard?
Yes! A permit is required before planting street trees. There is no charge for a permit. A forester will come to the site and mark the available planting spot(s) with a dot of white paint on the edge of the curb. They will provide you with a permit and recommended tree species, along with information on tree planting and tree care. The forester will also provide you with information on the Partners In Planting Program.
