What is the Street Tree Program?

As part of its efforts to maintain both the City’s Tree City status and the many benefits provided by a healthy urban forest, the City of Montgomery offers the Street Tree Program to provide a street tree to property owners for a $150 co-pay.  The co-pay covers a portion of the cost of the tree and the labor for planting it in the public right-of-way.

Street Tree applications will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. When the annual Street Tree Program budget has been exhausted, applications will be held for future consideration.

Each property owner may request one street tree per year; if the property frontage permits planting of more than one street tree, a second tree may be requested and may be approved subject to the annual Street Tree Program budget and demand for the program by other residents.

All decisions regarding the Street Tree Program are at the discretion of the Public Works Director or his designee. This may include but is not limited to the location for planting, species, size, timing of planting, and replacement of trees.
