The project purpose is to plant shade trees on private property where they have the greatest chance for survival and long-term contribution to the community. The project requires that all trees must be planted within 25 feet of the public right-of-way (i.e. behind street or sidewalk, etc.,).
The Town of Narragansett will purchase and plant the tree at no cost to the property owner. The actual planting will be done by a contractor (i.e. RI Tree Council) hired by the Town of Narragansett. Trees will be distributed on a first come first serve basis while the supply lasts to property owners who meet program eligibility requirements.
Any Town of Narragansett citizen meeting the following program requirements is eligible to receive a planted tree. They are:
proof of property ownership
complete a Consent and Waiver Liability Form and Tree Selection Form
will care and water the tree for one year following planting
