The purpose of a city wide Street Tree Planting Plan is to:
Insure continuity of plant species within designated areas for a uniform flow of color and visual effect.
Better manage plantings by species and location.
Have a guide for the planting of specific types of vegetation within designated areas of the city when private requests, grants or city street planting projects are involved.
Have a list of acceptable street trees with details on their growth habits, color, pest tolerance and management needs.
Have a guideline for the proper placement of plants; such as spacing distance, set back from corners, location within open planting strip areas and procedures for planting within concrete sidewalk areas.
Insure acceptable planting techniques are used for the benefit of future growth of the tree and compatibility with its immediate environment.
