Trees for Village Residents
Each year the Village offers a tree planting program to its residents. Residents can have a tree planted in their yard for half the cost of the tree. The trees are planted in the fall. Sign up is usually held in the summer so that the trees can be ordered or prepared for transplanting.
If you are interested in receiving a tree please contact Darcy Benter
firstname.lastname@example.org or Lori Spelde email@example.com at Village Hall (616) 842-1393 to place an order and inform us of where the tree would be planted in your yard.
In the fall, after obtaining permission from you to enter your property, the Village staff will stake the location of the tree and contact MISS DIG prior to planting the tree. Once planted, the tree is yours to water, care for and enjoy.
The following is a list of the trees that are most often available.
- Maples (Autumn Blaze and Crimson King)
- Cleveland Select Pear
- Ivory Silk (white) Lilac
- Redbud, Pink Heartbreaker
