  4. My home is adjacent to a public street.*

  5. Contact Information

  6. Determine Your Tree Size:

  7. Shade Tree (tree will grow larger than 30 ft tall at maturity)

    • No overhead utilities are located within 30 ft of the desired planting spot
    • Existing trees are the following distances from the desired planting spot:
      -- Other shade trees are at least 15 ft away
      -- Small/understory trees are at least 10 ft away

  8. Utility Compatible/Understory Tree (tree will grow to less than 30 ft tall at maturity)

    • Overhead utilities may be present at any distance from the desired planting spot
    • Existing trees of any size are at least 10 ft from the desired planting spot

  9. Based on the above criteria, which tree size class are you eligible for?*


    Remember that trees must be planted within the street right-of-way, which is close to the street. Call Leigh at 359-4759 if you are unsure of where this right-of-way boundary is located.

  10. Tree Species Selection

  11. Below are the species available for Foster-A-Tree this year. Please select a species based on your Tree Size (see above) and enter your first choice and an alternative choice. You may view photos and characteristics of each species at the link below.

  12. Tree Placement

  13. Based on your tree size and species selection, Urban Forestry will inspect your yard in order to determine potential areas where your tree may be planted. When you receive your Foster-A-Tree Agreement Form, you will have the opportunity to choose your tree's planting spot within the eligible areas. All trees must be planted within the public right-of-way.

  14. Acknowledgements - As a participant of Foster-A-Tree...

  15. I have completed my two year maintenance agreement for my previous foster tree if this is not the first time I have registered for the Foster-A-Tree program. (I.e. If you are registering for the Fall 2019 planting, your previous tree must have been planted no later than Fall 2017).

  16. I am the owner of the property where this tree will be planted, or I have permission from the property owner to plant a tree on this property through the Foster-A-Tree program.*

  17. I acknowledge that my tree must be planted in the public right-of-way (which is usually within 10-12 feet of the street edge).

    *

  18. I acknowledge that my tree must be planted adjacent to my own residence and not in a greenbelt or common area, unless I am the authority responsible for that area. (i.e. Homeowner's Association officer or landscape manager)

    *

  19. I acknowledge that there must be available space for a tree to mature without causing conflict with utilities, other trees or infrastructure, in order for a tree to be planted in the right-of-way adjacent to my property.

    *

  20. I acknowledge that the size of tree (Shade Tree or Utility Compatible/Understory Tree) offered to me will be based upon the available space for a new tree and will determine the species from which I select my tree.

    *

  21. I agree to mark any lawn irrigation lines prior to the tree planting date once I am notified of when the planting date will be.

    *

  22. I agree to water my tree for two years, to protect it from mechanical harm due to lawn maintenance equipment/vehicles/pets/etc. and to report any questionable tree issues to the Urban Forestry Department as soon as possible upon noticing the issues. Overall, I agree to follow the basic guidelines in the Foster-A-Tree Maintenance Guide for two years until my tree becomes established.*

  23. I acknowledge that while the Urban Forestry Department may return to perform maintenance on my foster tree early in its life, the tree is my responsibility to maintain in a safe condition.*
