Where do we plant? Sustainable Saratoga can now plant a large-growing shade tree directly in your front yard. We are no longer limited to planting in the city-owned tree lawn between the sidewalk and the curb, although street trees do remain our first-choice location. If you live in the City, request a #NextGenTree and we will work with you to find the best location for your tree.
What do we plant? We plant large-growing, native shade trees because they provide far greater benefits than small ornamentals. Species we plant include: hackberry, Kentucky yellowwood, basswood, black tupelo, disease-resistant American elm, tulip tree, and various oak species.
Can’t make this year’s Tree Toga? Request a street tree from the City’s Department of Public Works (518-587-3550, x2555), or buy a tree from a local nursery and plant your tree anywhere you would like in your yard! Click here to learn more about these planting options.
