Fairfield Tree Planting Program

Would you like to enhance the beauty of your property and street?  If so, the Town offers a voluntary, collaborative, tree-planting program that will help you do just that! For $150 (price subject to change) the Town will help you select a tree appropriate for your site and plant it for you on the public right-of-way along your property line.

What are the homeowners’ responsibilities?

You must water the tree after it is planted and during times of drought. Remembering regular watering is critical to the success of the newly planted tree!

What are the Town’s responsibilities?

The Town is responsible for planting, mulching, and pruning the trees throughout its life.

The Right Tree in the Right Place

To achieve the full benefits of a tree, it must be selected and planted according to a well thought-out plan suitable for the planting site and surroundings. For that reason a site visit will be made to help select the proper tree.

What size should I consider? What species of trees are available?

Location of utility lines determine size and species of trees available. If utility lines are on your side, you may select from this list. If utility lines are on the opposite side of the street, you may select from this list.

The Tree Warden and/or a member of the Forestry Committee will visit your site and help you make an appropriate selection. To request to have a tree planted in the right-of-way bordering your property enter a Service Request (select Tree Issues and then Tree Planting Request) or call 203-256-3178.
