The City of Coeur d'Alene has a number of street trees that need good homes! Street trees are planted at residential locations within public right-of-way areas in the city limits through the CDA Re-Leaf program. Trees are planted at no cost to the homeowner to enhance our neighborhoods and provide many street-side benefits such as mitigating storm water and reducing pollution.
Trees are available to homeowners who are willing to provide care, including watering and protection from mowers and trimmers. Those that are interested should contact Urban Forester Nick Goodwin with the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department to sign up for a street tree. There are a limited number of trees and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
The tree species still available are Emerald Sunshine Elm, Skyline Honey Locust, Kentucky Coffee tree and Princeton Sentry Gingko. If you have powerlines over your planting space, we will have a limited amount of powerline rated trees for these sites. Don’t worry about the planting; trees will be planted by a contract tree planting crew beginning in April, and completed by the end of May.
These trees cannot be used to fulfill street tree requirements/for a refund.
