Tree Planting

TreeSince its creation in 1985, the Forestry Division has planted more than 9,700 shade, evergreen, and ornamental trees on city road right-of-way, in parks, and at various city facilities. Most of these trees have been planted along streets in new subdivisions as part of the “Subdivision Tree Planting Program.” Under this program, developers of single-family subdivisions platted after 1979 are required to provide funds for street trees based on the number of lots. The Forestry Division oversees the planting operation as the new homes are completed and occupied.

Beginning in 2015, the city of Rochester Hills Tree Planting Program provides street trees at no charge for approved planting sites.
