Pilot Private Property Planting Program
The Town of Cheverly, in an effort to promote and preserve its urban forest, is proposing a pilot program this fall.  The Town will continue to be aggressive in planting trees in public rights-of-way (the first 11 feet back from the top of the curb), and on publicly owned property.  We often times find our species selection and potential size selection limited by overhead utility wires, underground utilities and/or sidewalks.982005_25620_0.jpg

The “Private Property Planting Program” would be a cooperative effort between the Town of Cheverly government and the citizens of Cheverly.  The program provides for a “license to enter” agreement between the property owner and the Town of Cheverly, which allows the Town access for planting, mulching and pruning for a one-year period.  Upon the conclusion of the “license to enter” term, the property owner has sole rights to the tree.  An example of the agreement is available for review upon request.  The property owner will be provided with a brochure outlining tips regarding the care and maintenance of the tree.  The phone number for the Director of Public Works will be included should questions arise.

If you are interested in being considered for this pilot program, which will include approximately five trees to be planted in late October, just mail or bring the form below to the town offices by October 1st.  The Mayor and Council felt that a lottery system would be the most equitable means by which to select participants.
