In order to have trees planted owners must go through an application process via the Parks Division or the Parks Division website. Once applications are received at the address posted on the application the property will be inspected by an authority from the Parks Division. During this inspection the authority will assess if there is space available and no utility conflicts for the planting of a tree.
After the property has been inspected the Parks Division will make the determination if a tree can be planted while keeping up with efforts to ensure public safety and reduce maintenance costs for the City of Frederick.
Permanent borders or built-up planters around trees are not allowed. They are a trip hazard and cause undesirable root growth.
Note: Residents as well as professional arboricultural companies are not allowed to prune any public right-of-way tree without the permission/authority of the City of Frederick
If you have any other questions about the right of way trees, please contact the City of Frederick Arborist at (301) 600-1233.
