Norwich has many beautiful tree-lined streets. In an effort to add to our urban forest, the City of Norwich Street Tree Committee has secured a grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Community Urban Forestry Grant Program to plant 60 more street trees in City tree lawns over the next two years.
The Street Tree Committee and community volunteers will be planting trees in tree lawns, the strip of grass between the sidewalk and the curb in front of homes and businesses. No trees that are considered to be invasive or overly messy trees will be planted. The new trees will be able to stand up to the salt, drought, pollution and compaction that street trees endure. Small trees, such as serviceberry and Japanese tree lilac, will be planted under power lines and in smaller tree lawns, and large trees such as oak, hackberry and London planetree will be planted in large tree lawns with no wires.
To qualify for a tree you must have a tree lawn planting location: at least 4 feet wide by 4 feet long, that is more than 15 feet away from an intersection and 10 feet from hydrants, light poles, signs etc., and agree to care for your new tree. If you already have a tree in your tree lawn or trees in your yard that extend into the tree lawn, your property may not be chosen.
Please fill out one form per address by Monday, April 15, 2019. The first round of trees will be planted this spring. We will plant approximately 15 trees each spring and fall of 2019 and 2020. The request list will carry through if more than 15 requests are made this spring. If you have any questions about the tree planting program or are interested in volunteering, please e-mail norwichtrees@gmail.com.
