Each year, we plant trees along the street "right-of-way" during April and May. Request a free tree to be planted in the "right-of-way" at your home or business during the month of March each year. The first priority is given to lots and areas with no trees. The second priority is given in accordance with the number and species of existing trees. If you are selected to receive a tree, Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department Forestry will select the species and location to be planted. The site will be staked several days in advance and information about the species of tree will be placed on your door. Access the 2019 Tree Planting Request Form.
