Tree planting in the city boulevards or street right-of-ways requires a permit from the city. The reason for the permit is to avoid interference with underground or overhead electric lines, cables and underground water and sewer lines and street signs. There is no cost for the permit.
The City of Windom Tree Commission will be offering a Boulevard Tree Program for 2017. You can sign up for trees after January 1st.
Any property owner within the city limits that desires a new boulevard trees please contact the City of Windom Street Department 507-831-6137 after January 1, of a given year. Cost for each tree will be $25.00 and the trees will be planted by experience staff. All the property owner needs to do is guarantee they will water the tree weekly throughout the growing season. We advise property owners not to fertilize the new trees as it could harm them in the early stages of growing. Quantities are limited so sign up right after the first of the year. The trees are non-fruit bearing and are considered large shade trees
