Tree Planting

The City of Bluffton will assist residents in planting trees along city streets during the early spring of 2017.

Cost of trees are $32.00 each.  Trees are approximate 5′ tall and will arrive in a 7 gallon container.  They must be ordered and paid for before March 17th at Mayor Ted Ellis’ office. Download order form (PDF)

Trees offered will be:
Maple (Red Sunset)
Pink Flowering Crab (Prairie Fire) 
White Flowering Pear (Cleveland Pear)

The city will assist homeowners in planting trees by digging the hole for planting during early spring, provided the location can be reached from the street by the city’s equipment. If you wish, the trees will be delivered to your home for you to plant.  Trees are expected to arrive during the first week of April.

The city will be purchasing the trees from Steve’s Landscaping in Bluffton. The City cannot guarantee the tree’s growth, since much of the success of a planting depends upon the care of the tree after it is in the ground.

Trees may not be planted under utility lines or where the growth of the tree may endanger either overhead or underground utilities.
