Starting this week and continuing until the end of June, the City’s Forestry Services team will be planting new trees in parks, at City facilities, and at homes in our community.
Public locations include:
- Trustee M. Curry Park
- Campobello Park
- Deer Run Park
- 1011 Stittsville Main Street (along the street)
- Stormwater Management area behind Coyote Crescent
Many homeowners have also requested trees through the City’s Trees in Trust program. Species to be planted include:
- Red maple
- Sugar maple
- Honey locust
- Malus pink
- Callery pear
- Northern red oak
- Oakleaf mountain ash
- Japanese lilac
- Prospector elm
Where a tree planting is scheduled on City property adjacent to a residence, individual notifications will be provided to the resident in advance of planting. Residents should also expect to see utility locate flags and paint on the ground prior to planting.
