Branch Out Berkley Fall Tree Program
The Fall Street Tree Program is full this year. Check back in the spring for more information!
The beauty of Berkley's tree-lined streets is a result of the successful Tree Planting Program that allows residents to purchase beautiful trees at a reasonable cost every year. The young trees that are planted are about 1½ inches in diameter and approximately 10 feet tall.
