An official Site Plan that details the proposed locations of all trees to be planted is required when applying. The Tree Planting Standards, available at the Street Tree Planting Permit Application and Street Tree Planting Standards link above, should be used when developing street tree planting plans in the design phase of construction projects.
Mail or fax the permit application along with a Site Plan of the proposed tree planting location to the Central Forestry Office (see contact information below).
Once the application has been received, a Parks and Recreation Forester will visit the site within three weeks to determine if the proposed plan is acceptable and, if so, what species of tree(s) will be planted.
A Tree Planting Permit or Tree Planting Permit Denial will be mailed or faxed back to the applicant.
Once the trees have been planted, staked, mulched, and the tree pits finished with granite block (if applicable), the applicant must mail or fax a notification to the Central Forestry Office (see contact information below) requesting a final planting inspection.
Once a final planting inspection has been requested, a Parks and Recreation Forester will visit the site within three weeks to ensure the correct species was planted and that the tree(s) has been planted properly. If all work is completed to Parks satisfaction, a final sign-off will be issued. If all work is not completed satisfactorily, a list of necessary actions will be created and the applicant will be required to correct all problems. Then, Parks will proceed as above.
After two years, a Parks and Recreation Forester will inspect the site again and request replacement of the tree(s) if the original has not survived.
