Tree Replacement Program

posted in Leisure Services on August 21, 2017

Waverly Trees Forever is sponsoring a tree replacement program for Waverly residents. The program objective is to begin to restore the Waverly tree canopy after the trees that will be removed due to the Emerald Ash Borer situation.

Any Waverly address may take advantage of the program if they have had an ash tree removed or they have an ash tree between the sidewalk and the curb that will be removed in the future. 

Trees may be purchased by the public at Tiedt Nursery, Wells Hollow Landscaping, and Ecker’s Greenhouse.  The program is a 50% rebate up to $75 on the cost of the tree. For example: a $100 tree would get a $50 rebate, a $150 tree would get a $75 rebate, and a $250 tree would get a $75 rebate.  

Because Waverly is about 40% maples between the sidewalk and the curb, this program will not give rebates on maple trees.

There is a limit of funding so there is a limit on the number of trees rebated each year.  Each purchaser may only buy one tree per address each year. 

A suggested list of replacement species was given to all vendors.  The choices will be limited by their current inventory.

The dates of the program are September 1- November 1. There will be no sales after November 1, 2017.
