Tree Commission

Tree Planting Incentive Program and Tree Planting

 

April 2017

This year the Tree Commission is again subsidizing tree purchases and planting by town residents on their property.

This has been an annual program and is administered through the following Middletown garden supply businesses;

          Moore Blooms, 577 Green End Ave.

Boulevard Nurseries, 1105 East Main Road

Chaves Gardens, 995 East Main Road

At these businesses, the Commission gives a $50 credit towards the purchase of a tree by a town resident .  The $50 is deducted from the price of the tree by the garden center. The tree must be planted in Middletown, and one tree per home owner, per year is permitted.

The budget for this program is limited, and it will be terminated for the year when that budget is reached.

 Since its inception in 2009, the Commission has subsidized the planting of more than 800 trees.
