Annual Parkway Tree Offer
The Northfield Township Road District will share with residents and businesses the cost of approximately 25 new parkway trees in 2016. Trees will range between 3 to 3 1/2" inches in diameter and a property owners share will be $150 per tree ordered, regardless of variety or size. There is a limit of two trees per property, providing there is adequate room within the public right-of-way. (Sorry, no trees may be ordered for private property.)
The trees will be planted during May, June and if necessary, early October as weather permits. There is a 15-month one-time replacement guarantee for each tree. Guarantees do not cover tree death due to obvious owner neglect, including over or under watering. The Northfield Township Road District will provide property owners with tree-care instructions.
Trees must be planted equidistant from curb and sidewalks, at least 35' from any other parkway tree, at least 10' from a driveway or street light and at least 45' from an intersection to ensure unobstructed sight lines. Locations must be at least 5' from manholes, fire hydrants and b-boxes.
