This is a request that the City of Pittsburgh plant tree(s) on the public right-of-way adjacent to my property. Please read this form and fill out the appropriate fields below if you are interested in getting a tree!
I understand the planting of trees may necessitate the City of Pittsburgh cutting an opening in the sidewalk that is at least 30 square feet (approximately 3′ X 10′) to accomodate the tree planting.
I hereby acknowledge that I am the owner of the above said property. I hereby request the City of Pittsburgh to supply and install a tree(s) to be located on the municipal right-of-way adjacent to my property. I understand that there is no charge for this service.
I agree to perform general upkeep of the tree planting bed by weeding, annually mulching, and providing water for establishment and during drought periods (see Agreement to Plant a Street Tree in Pittsburgh).*
I also understand this form does not guarantee that a tree(s) will be placed adjacent to my property. Upon receipt of this request, a representative of TreeVitalize or NMRWA will do a site analysis to determine the suitability of planting a tree at this location.
*If funding is available, the Nine Mile Run Watershed Association will provide water during the establishment period of your tree. Further, NMRWA encourages property owners to connect with us to hold a tree care event in your neighborhood, especially to mulch a large number of trees.
If you are interested in a tree, please fill out the form below. Additionally, if you prefer to fill out a hard copy of the Tree Request Form, a printable version of the Tree Request Form for Pittsburgh is available here.
