Plant a tree on your parkway

Jun 02, 2016 01:19PM ● By Neighbors Magazines

The City of Batavia provides residents with an opportunity to purchase a parkway tree, as part of its commitment to reforestation in Batavia. The available species are locally grown, quality trees that do well in city parkways. We offer a variety of species each year to provide a diversified parkway tree population for our community. Residents pay one-half of the tree cost, which is posted on the city’s website. The cost covers the tree, planting, and mulch. Residents will be invoiced for their share of the tree cost after planting.

To apply for a tree:

Please submit the online request form (form available at We will accept requests until Sept. 15 or while supplies last. If you require a paper form, call us at the number below and one will be sent to you.

Placement of trees is subject to location of utilities and space requirements. For example, our minimum spacing is generally 40’ between trees and 10’ from driveways, manholes, and hydrants. Only lower-growth trees such as crabapples can be planted beneath overhead wires.
