Appropriate Plantings List

In order to effectively control the types of plantings used throughout the city in the right-of-way, it would be wise to further develop and more broadly publish a list of appropriate trees and shrubs that may be planted. Plantings are an important way to improve the pedestrian realm and make positive contributions to individual and environmental health. However, inappropriate plantings can contribute to maintenance issues such as heaving sidewalks and right-of-way encroachments. Click here and here for more information.
