Quincy asks residents to buy trees

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Quincy officials are asking residents to consider growing a tree. The Fall Tree Planting Program starts Tuesday. 

Residents and businesses can buy a tree and have it planted along the street on the right-of-way near their home or business.
Crews will plant the trees, but the owner is responsible for watering and other upkeep.
Quincy Director of Central Services Marty Stegeman says the city has a variety of trees for people to choose from.

"We have three maple trees: October Glory, Autumn Flame and Green Mountain Sugar Maple," Stegeman said. "And then there are five varieties of shorter trees that are more appropriate for placing underneath power lines."

Stegeman says there are 80 trees available to buy. If you want one to go on the right-of-way, contact Central Services at 228-4520.
