Free street trees available

Print Article

The city of Coeur d’Alene has 85 street trees that need good homes.

Street trees will be planted at residential locations within public right-of-way areas in the Coeur d’Alene city limits through the CDA Re-Leaf program, according to the city’s website.

Trees are planted at no cost to the homeowner to enhance neighborhoods and provide many street-side benefits such as mitigating storm water and reducing pollution.

“This yearly program helps to grow our urban forest and we encourage the citizens of Coeur d’Alene to take part,” the press release said.

Trees are available to homeowners residing within the city limits of Coeur d Alene who are willing to provide care for the trees, including watering and protecting from mowers and trimmers. Those who are interested should contact the Urban Forester with the Coeur d’Alene Parks Department to sign up for a street tree. Trees will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The tree species still available are Frontier Elm, Metro Gold maple, Zelkova, and Eastern redbud.

Trees will be planted by a contract tree planting crew in late April or early May.

Deadline to sign up for a tree is March 30.
