Branch Out Berkley With a FREE Tree

Tree Graphic

We are offering our Street Tree Program FREE of charge this year!

There will be around 100 trees available to residents for placement in the City's public greenbelt (right-of-way). Additionally, any resident that had a public tree removed from the greenbelt can also request a free tree replacement in this program. Please note if a tree was removed from the right-of-way, it takes around 5 years for the roots to break down to allow for a new tree to be planted in the same area. New tree placement is also contingent upon underground utility locations and the size of greenbelt. Trees will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
