Tree Maintenance

The City of Novi has established a tree maintenance program, which consists of the care and improvement of all trees on the public property. The goal is to prune each street tree once every five to seven years. Qualified personnel, led by the Forestry Asset Manager, perform this work. There is no charge to the adjacent property owner. Since trees are living and growing organisms, clearance problems may occur between pruning cycles. Individual requests can be made by the property owner then inspected the Forestry Asset Manager and scheduled for pruning.

 
All subdivisions are on a pruning schedule. A map of anticipated subdivision maintenance pruning map can be found in our Map Gallery.

Street Tree Planting

Recently planted trees in neighborhood.Trees provide many benefits to our community. They shade our homes during the hot summer months and help keep our houses warm in the winter, provide screening protection, slow down harsh winds, provide food and shelter for wildlife, and create natural air filters. Studies have shown that street trees increase real estate value.

Property owners may plant street trees by obtaining a Street Tree Permit, free of charge, from the Forestry Division. The Forestry Asset Manager will conduct an on-site inspection to determine where the trees can placed, recommend species for the site, and issue the permit.

Placement of trees in the boulevard area must accommodate proper distance between tree species with minimum distance from: intersections, fire hydrants, street lights, overhead and under-ground utilities, water service lines, mailboxes, street signs, and driveways. A list of acceptable tree species is available below.
