Is your yard in need of a tree? 

 

Through the BNA Tree Canopy Program, Belknap neighbors can request that a tree(s) be planted in their front or side yard 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 and MSD’s Urban Reforestation Program. 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. 

Interested neighbors should contact Jack Francis, francisjack@bellsouth.net or 502-451-8611 during the summer months. He will schedule a site visit in the fall with each homeowner for siting and tree selection process.
