This list represents trees that are approved for planting in the right-of-way. Although the property owner's preference will be considered, the City Urban Forester will ultimately determine the tree species for each location. 

This list is currently being evaluated for revision and the City may identify certain unlisted species as appropriate street trees depending on the planting location.
