Holiday Tree Information
......................December 4, 2013

 

PLEASE NOW IS THE TIME TO CONSIDER A LIVING TREE.....When planting remember that pines grow large and need room for roots .....a great location central in your yard will provide the shade needed for the sidewalk, and street and home. Jamming your tree between the sidewalk and street requires excess trimming, not sufficient root water penetration all the way around the tree, and can be damaged when trucks come by...plan ahead.

If you would like to recycle a living tree......lets keep the shade in Coronado. Networking for people who would like to donate their tree to a neighbor can be passed along on the Coronado Message Board HERE

Plus consider donating to Phoenix Urban Forestry trees must be uncut with roots. See below for additional information on size and type.

Container-grown living trees may be donated for planting in city of Phoenix parks.  Parks will only accept 15 gallon-sized or 24" box-sized trees.  They can be delivered to a nearby maintenance facility to be planted in a local park.  The trees need to be one of the four following species:
- Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis)
- Eldrica pine or Goldwater pine (Pinus eldarica)
- Canary Island pine (Pinus canariensis)
- Chir pine (Pinus roxburghii)
Call 602-534-9440 for drop-off locations or for additional information.
