The City of Evansville is a Tree City. Every year we participate in a tree planting program for Arbor Day. Residents can purchase a tree and have it planted in the terrace. Trees have to be planted in areas that do not interfere with utilities or would block the view of cross traffic at intersections.
The City of Evansville is offering a limited number of terrace trees for sale to all City residents. The City Public Works Department and volunteers will plant, stake, and mulch the trees for the cost of $55 per tree. Autumn Blaze and McSentry Linden trees are 1 1/4” in diameter, and the Discovery Elm and Donald Flowering Crab Apple trees are 1” in diameter. A site assessment will be required to insure the trees can be successfully planted. Tree planting will occur the week after April 27th, weather permitting.
Available trees include:
