2020 Residential Tree Planting Program
Thanks to recent grants and donations Plymouth Township is pleased to provide a Residential Tree Planting Program to benefit our community. The Township's objective is to encourage green neighborhoods, increase the overall tree canopy and preserve and enhance the character of tree-lined streets. The program also offers residents an opportunity to replace trees that have been lost over time to disease and other factors. The available trees can be planted in public right-of-ways (between the sidewalk and the street) or by a Homeowners Association (HOA) within designated common areas of the subdivision. There is no cost for the trees, however, property owners are responsible for installation and ongoing maintenance for the life of the tree(s). Please see application below.
