Right-of-Way Tree Request Form

  1. Right-of-Way Tree Request Form

    A request for a tree to be planted in the City of Delafield right-of-way may be made by a property owner or a resident of the City of Delafield of the property where the tree is to be planted. Request forms will be accepted at the Delafield City Hall and will be handled based on the order in which they are received. The cutoff date to receive a tree the following spring is October 1st . The requests will be limited to one tree per property annually. Once a request is fulfilled and a tree is planted, an additional request can be made. The number and species of trees planted in a given year will depend on funds available to purchase and plant trees, available nursery stock, the City Staff’s availability and the City Forester’s discretion in order to maintain what is in the best interest of the City. Please refer to the tree list that follows to choose a specific tree or the City Forester can also recommend a tree acceptable for the site upon approval for planting. Approval by the City Forester is required for a specific species/cultivar of tree if it is not included on the list. The size of a tree will be comparable to trees that the city normally plants. In the event that specific nursery stock is not available at the time of ordering/planting, a reasonable substitute may be used. The approximate size of deciduous trees to be planted would be 2” in diameter at breast height (DBH) or 5’ to 6’ tall for evergreens. The City Forester will do an onsite evaluation and possibly utilize Diggers Hotline for planning purposes. Trees will be planted as close to the outside edge of the right-of-way as possible. The width of the road right-of-way can vary depending on the area. Some additional conditions that may limit tree installation are; the space available between pavement and the edge of the right-of-way so as not to cause visibility or clearance issues with the roadway and/or sidewalk, utilities above and below ground, drainage swales or ditches and the presence of existing tree canopy. The City Forester may decide that a tree should not be planted because of one or more of the above listed reasons but not limited to only those reasons. It is a case by case decision based on each potential site.

  2. Once a tree is planted, we please ask you to water the tree weekly with 10 to 20 gallons of water for a period of one year. If you received an evergreen it is good to water until the ground is frozen. If you are unable to water or continue to keep up with the watering schedule please contact the City Forester so the tree can be watered by City Staff.
