Branch Out Berkley Fall Tree Planting Program
Our FREE Fall Street Tree Program is currently FULL. Please check back in Spring 2023!
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 are made available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is a LIMITED number available.
