Edmond residents can adopt a tree | NewsOK.com
EDMOND — Urban forestry officials have planted 50 trees throughout Edmond since last spring as part of the Foster-A-Tree program.
They are looking for places to plant an additional 25 trees this spring. Residents who sign up for the program by Feb. 23 get a free tree planted in the public right of way on their property.
The program teams urban forestry officials and residents to replace dying and diseased trees with new, healthy ones.
City officials buy the trees, but the property owner makes a two-year commitment to water the tree and protect the tree from unnecessary harm, said Leigh Martin, urban forestry assistant.
