street tree

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% of the cost of planting trees in the public rights of way and the resident pays the other 50%. 

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 rights of way with root systems not likely to interfere with sidewalks or streets. All trees will be planted in the public rights of way in late fall.

For more information on prices and how to participate, visit crevecoeurmo.gov/Trees. Learn more about the characteristics and uses of each tree on the Missouri Botanical Garden website at missouribotanicalgarden.org.
