Tree Planting Programs

The Town of Erie has three tree programs that are offered to Erie residents and businesses! 

To be eligible for a program, purchase must be made during the optimal planting period. Spring: March 15-June 15 or Fall: September 1-October 15. 

Tree must be one of the approved trees from the Approved Tree Species.

  • Excluding ash and dwarf varieties or trees with an expected mature height of less than 12 feet. 
  • Deciduous trees must be 1.5-inch caliper or greater.
  • Evergreens must be at least 6 feet tall.

Submission of an application does not guarantee a rebate. Rebates are processed on a first-come, first serve basis until quantities are exhausted. 

In honor of the Town’s sesquicentennial celebration we’re gifting 150 1” diameter trees to our residents, along with our traditional seedling giveaway, at our Arbor Day/Earth Day celebration in April.

Tree varieties include: Maple, Sensation Boxelder; Northern Catalpa; Hackberry; Redbud; Kentucky Coffeetree, Espresso; or Oak, Chinkapin. Limited quantities of each are available and we are asking interested residents to select their top three choices.
