** Due to COVID-19 budget cuts and layoffs, we are unable to provide this service for the foreseeable future. We will properly maintain those trees already planted and growing as best we can.
The City of Richmond Heights plants street trees throughout the city in our neighborhoods and parks to provide benefits for years to come.
The benefits of planting of trees include: water conservation, prevent soil erosion, improve biodiversity, filter pollutants, produce oxygen, absorb and sequester carbon, provide habitat for wildlife, provide shade, control temperatures, increase property values, provide aesthetic value, and inspire us to continue to strive for excellence for the future of our community. One of the most lasting examples of community spirit and pride is often the trees of our urban forest.
If you have questions about our Tree Planting Program or would like to request a tree for planting along a city street, please contact our City Forester at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at 314.655.3656.
The City of Richmond Heights has educational brochures available at THE HEIGHTS on proper tree selection and maintenance as recommended by the International Society of Arboriculture and the Society of Municipal Foresters.
