Will the city replace a sidewalk tree?
This question was recently asked in the Church Hill Neighborhood Facebook group, an invaluable and awesome group of neighbors. If you use Facebook and haven’t signed up, go check them out!
The Adopt a Tree Program is something that we have recently been dealing with in our household. The program seems simple: you fill out an application, you choose a pre-determined lot location based on where you live and where a tree may be planted, pay $50 (per tree) to the enRichmond Foundation and then you wait.
Usually the applications are due in August and the planting times vary (between November and April 15th). We have yet to see our trees but there’s still 6 weeks to go for planting them.
