Yes! In areas where the tree lawns are less than three feet deep, pavement conflicts would arise if a large shade tree were planted there. As these sites are identified, the City offers the abutting owner the option of having a tree planted on the private side of the sidewalk. In these arrangements, the City purchases and plants the tree then confers ownership and maintenance responsibility to the abutting property owner. Setback planting programs allow communities to grow larger, more environmentally impactful trees close to the pavement.
