Resident Tree Orders Due by Friday, September 18th

family-tree-iconTrees can add value to your home, help cool your home and neighborhood, break the cold winds to lower your heating costs, and provide food for wildlife.  Properly cared for trees are valuable growing assets worth three times the investment. Visit the International Society of Arboriculture website to learn more about the value of trees.
The Village of Bellevue provides a neighborhood tree planting program for residents who wish to have trees planted in the terrace area adjacent to their property. The planting program is offered every fall and runs concurrent with other fall plantings. The resident pays for the wholesale cost of the tree, which includes planting of the tree(s).
Planting along the street terrace can also provide many aesthetic benefits to your local neighborhood or street.  An example of what a street can look like with moderately aged trees along the terrace is shown below.
