Trees are an important asset to the Village of Tequesta and our residents. For years, Tequesta has been planting trees with the intent of cooling our streets, cleansing the air, and to beautify our Village. Through the Adopt-a-Tree Program, the Village is able to form a partnership with concerned homeowners to improve our village streets.
Tequesta, through the Adopt-A-Tree Program, will provide and plant a variety of trees for homeowners in the swale area (the grassy strip between the pavement and the sidewalk) adjacent to their property. Prior to tree planting an onsite inspection is required by the Village to determine the appropriate tree(s) species for the Right of Way (ROW) area in accordance with Right Tree Right Place principles. The homeowner must then care for the trees after the Village completes the planting. Adopting a tree is a big commitment and should be taken seriously.
