2019 Tree Planting Program
Our urban forest is an important part of what makes Berkley so special. Many of the City's mature trees are silver maples that are coming to the end of their lifespan and are being removed. This is one reason why planting new trees now is more important than ever. Please check out Berkley's 2019 Tree Planting Program for information on purchasing a tree.
Orders must be placed and paid for by August 16, 2019. Trees are limited and can be purchased on a first-come, first-serve basis only.
These trees are available at a subsidized cost to residents. Trees purchased at a nursery will be significantly more expensive. They can be planted in the green belt or on private property. There are many options available. Diversifying the species of trees helps to prevent the decimation of whole neighborhoods when a disease or insect attacks, like emerald ash borer or Dutch elm disease.
