The City wants to join residents in celebrating a child’s birth by planting a tree in their honor. The City’s new program, “Growing Together,” will allow families to watch their child and tree grow together.
Anyone interested may purchase one of the following trees from the City at current market value:
· Pink Tabebuia - $288
· Live Oak - $272
· Royal Poinciana - $264.50
· Bald Cypress - $236
· Mahogany - $207.50
· Gumbo Limbo - $210
· Red Maple - $185.50
· Golden Shower Tree -$275
Checks for trees should be made out to City of Coral Springs. City staff will then plant and maintain the tree. Parents are also welcome to provide a 5” by 7” plaque to identify the tree. The plaque must be metal, bronze in color with a black background. The City will install the plaque, but residents are responsible for the maintenance.
“This program will allow parents to visit their tree at different stages of their child’s life, while helping replenish the tree canopy that was lost after Hurricane Wilma,” Vice Mayor Vince Boccard said.
All trees will be planted along the pathway at Oakwood Park, located at 10284 SW 1st Court. Trees will be planted quarterly throughout the year.
