Public Works is continuing to remove the Ash trees from the parkway. The City will be replacing parkway trees each year as the budget allows. The type of tree will be selected by our certified arborist so that it is appropriate for the area.For the residents that would prefer to choose a tree from the approved parkway tree list, they can participate in the 50/50 program. There is limited funding for this option available on a first come, first served basis. Once funds for this option are depleted your request would push to the next year funds are available.
