The City of Coeur d'Alene has announced the availability of street trees to be planted in public right-of-way areas within the city limits through the CDA Re-Leaf program each spring. Trees are planted at no cost to the homeowner to enhance our neighborhoods. Trees reduce air pollution, increase oxygen in the air, mitigate storm water runoff, buffer noises, lower energy costs, increase property value and much more!
Priority will be given this year to targeted areas including new neighborhoods (less than 10 years old).
The young trees are available to homeowners or residents who are willing to provide care, including watering and protecting from mowers and trimmers. Interested residents should contact the Urban Forestry Division of the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department to sign up for a street tree. There are a limited number of trees each year that will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Funding for the trees has come from a street tree fee collected on residential building permits. The owners of the homes whose street tree fees have been forfeited are the first choice for using these funds, which the city contacts each year. However, there are usually many trees unclaimed.
