Beginning Feb. 15, and for a limited time, Dearborn residents can order affordable trees that will be planted on the easement in front of their homes.
The City of Dearborn encourages the planting of trees as a way to keep neighborhoods attractive, reduce energy consumption and support a healthier environment.
The annual spring tree planting program is open to Dearborn residents only.
Trees for 2012 cost $175 each, and the supply of trees for the program is limited. Trees range in size from eight to 10 feet in height and are sold on a first come, first served basis through Dearborn’s Department of Public Works.
Residents can choose from an assortment of trees. Each species offered meets American Association of Nurserymen standards and is zone hardy.
To place an order after Feb. 15 or to request a selection guide, residents can call 313-943-2317, or visit www.cityofdearborn.org.
