Is your yard in need of a tree? Get on the list for 2018!
Through the subsidized BNA Tree Canopy Program, Belknap neighbors can request that a tree(s) be planted in their front, side yard, or easement for a fraction of the cost of buying one at a tree nursery.
Belknap Neighborhood Association created this program in 2013 as a way to replenish general tree loss in the neighborhood, to contribute to BNA’s beautification mission, and to help reduce the city’s urban heat island effect.
BNA subsidizes most of the cost by partnering with Frank Otte Nursery, MSD’s Urban Reforestation Program, and through profits from the Belknap Fall Festival. In the last 3 years, the BNA Tree Canopy Program has planted more than 200 trees in the our neighborhood, including oak, maple, tulip poplar, gingko, elm, buckeye, bald cypress, and black gum. Trees can be planted in easements with a permit from Louisville Metro for which our Tree Canopy Program representative, Jack Francis, will acquire for you.
Interested neighbors should fill out the web form below to get on the list for 2018. A site visit will be scheduled in the fall with each homeowner for siting and tree selection process and trees will be planted mid-November.
