Street Tree Planting

Residents who have placed their orders will be receiving letters in the mail with more information and the schedule of when their trees will be planted. The 2019 Fall Program will be advertised in the Newsletter and on this website late summer/early fall 2019. Thank you.

Trees are offered in small, medium and large heights as well as two caliper sizes - 1" to 1.5" and 2.5" to 3". The cost to residents for the smaller 1" to 1.5" caliper size is $122.50 each and the larger 2.5" to 3" caliper is $217.50 each. Tree selections are listed below and the deadline date for ordering is Friday, October 19, by 5:00 p.m.  Thank you,


To participate in the program:

  • Select your tree preference(s) from the list. Trees are approximately 1" to 3" in caliper depending upon the type of tree and 10' to 12' tall. 
  • Fill out the application and pay 50 percent of the cost of the tree. The 2018 resident's share per tree is $122.50 for the smaller caliper and $217.50 for the larger caliper. Submit the application with your check, made payable to the City of Creve Coeur, to the Public Works Department.
  • At a later date you will receive a stake provided by the city which will be used to mark where you would like the tree(s) planted. Location(s) will need to be verified by city staff to ensure compliance with planting guidelines.
  • The city's contractor will plant the tree in the public right-of-way. Trees are planted in the fall (late October/early November).
  • The program offers a variety of trees - small to large, flowering and non-flowering, heavy to filtered shade. Trees are selected based on their ability to deal with urban conditions and safe to plant in the right-of-way such as non-fruiting varieties with root systems not likely to interfere with sidewalks or streets.

Tree Planting and Maintenance Information

Spring Tree Planting Program

The Spring Tree Planting Program will no longer be offered. The decision was made based on lack of participation and the fact that fall is a much better time to plant a tree and have it survive. 

The City of Creve Coeur Public Works Department offers a tree planting program for residents and subdivisions. In a public/private partnership, the city pays 50 percent of the cost of planting trees in the public rights of way and the resident pays 50 percent.
