Parkway Trees - Planting by Homeowners

Only City-approved trees may be planted in parkways. A tree planting permit from the Department of Public Works is required before planting parkway trees. The permit application includes a list of approved trees and planting directions. There is no charge for the permit.

The guidelines for parkway tree planting help to ensure that healthy trees appropriate for right-of-way planting are selected. This helps prevent future traffic visibility problems and tree decline due to roadway salt. Bushes are not permitted to be planted in the parkways.
