Branch Out Berkley Fall Tree Program
We are offering our Fall Street Tree Program FREE of charge!
The beauty of Berkley's tree-lined streets is a result of the successful Tree Planting Program. The young trees that are planted are about 1½ inches in diameter and approximately 10 feet tall.
Please note if a tree was removed from the right-of-way, it takes at least 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 the greenbelt. Trees will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
