There are approximately 35,000 curbside trees in Dearborn. These trees are trimmed on a five-year cycle to remove deadwood and for overhead clearance. Neighborhoods are notified prior to trimming. When the City determines a tree must be removed, there is no charge to the homeowner.
Residents and contractors are prohibited from trimming and removing City trees. All tree planting on City easements must be performed or approved by the City.
The City offers trees for sale one per year, generally from mid-Febuary through mid-April. The cost of the tree includes delivery, planting and a one-year warranty. Tree orders begin in February and are sold-out for 2016.
Trees located on private property are the responsibility of the property owner, including trimming, planting and removal. Property owners must request a tree removal permit before removing a tree from their property.
