The City of Creve Coeur Public Works Department is accepting applications for its annual tree planting program, open to residents and subdivisions. Through this program, the City pays 50 percent of the cost of planting trees in the public right of way and the resident pays the other 50 percent.
The program offers a variety of trees—small to large, flowering and non-flowering, heavy to filtered shade. Trees are selected based on their ability to deal with urban conditions and safe to plant in the right-of-way such as non-fruiting varieties with root systems not likely to interfere with sidewalks or streets.
Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on October 14, 2022. For more information on prices and how to participate, visit www.crevecoeurmo.gov/Trees.
