Branch Out Berkley Fall Tree Program

Tree Graphic

The Fall Street Tree Program is full this year. Check back in the spring for more information! 

The beauty of Berkley's tree-lined streets is a result of the successful Tree Planting Program which allows residents to select beautiful trees for free every year. The young trees that are planted are about 1½ inches in diameter and approximately 10 feet tall.
