In an ongoing effort to increase the City's tree canopy cover volunteers on the Lake Forest Park Tree Board will plant a limited number of trees on City right-of-way locations at no cost to property owners.

Various species of trees (those planted in 2013 include maple, dogwood, redbud, sourwood, and japanese snowbell) will be purchased by the City and planted by volunteers. Each tree will be approximately 6 to 8 feet tall at the time of planting and will be situated in a manner that will not obstruct sight lines from driveways or infringe on views. In order to ensure that the trees will not interfere with utilities, species will be chosen that will reach a maximum height of approximately 20 to 25 feet.

Homeowners can participate in the Tree Planting Project by giving permission for a tree to be planted on the right-of-way in front of their property and by agreeing to help with the ongoing watering of the tree by monitoring and filling the tree's water bag until the tree is established (approximately 3 years).
