If you would like a tree planted in your City-owned boulevard, please fill out a work order form and either mail or email it to the Park and Recreation Department. In order to receive a tree, there must be an area in your boulevard that meets the following criteria:
- Your boulevard must be at least 5 feet wide.
- Trees must be planted 25 feet from an intersection or alley.
- Small trees must be planted 5 feet from driveways; medium and large trees must be planted 15 feet from driveways.
- Trees must be planted 15 feet from curb box/water shutoffs and underground utilities.
A City of Antigo employee will inspect your boulevard and if you qualify, you will be placed on a list to receive a boulevard tree. Trees are planted according to the planting list. Please keep in mind that it may take a year or more for your tree to be planted. Each year's plantings are dependent upon time and budget. If you do not want to wait for the City to plant your tree, you may plant your own tree, however, you will need to file the appropriate paperwork. Instructions on the process for planting your own tree can be found in any of the tree brochures listed at the left.
You may choose the type of tree (from the approved list) that you would like to have planted in your boulevard, however, tree size is dependent on the placement of the overhead and underground utilities in your boulevard. A small tree is classified as 15-25 feet tall, medium trees are 25-40 feet tall and tall trees are 40 feet and above. Small trees must be at least 5 feet tall and have five or more branches when planted. Medium and large trees must be at least 8 feet tall and have a minimum trunk diameter of 1 1/2 inches at a point 6 inches above the ground.
Tree species must be approved by the City of Antigo before planting takes place. For a list of allowable trees, please refer to the tree brochures listed at the left.
