Trees are an integral component of Strongsville’s urban environment. Their shade and beauty contribute to the community’s quality of life and soften the hard appearance of concrete structures and streets.
The City of Strongsville has been awarded funding through Cuyahoga County’s Healthy Urban Tree Canopy Grant program that will allow the city to continue to offer the street tree cost-share program again for spring 2024.
This program offers residents one 1 ¾” caliper tree planted in their tree lawn for $155.
Deadline to order is Feb. 16, 2024, or earlier if supplies run out.
The planting sites will be marked out and prepped early this spring. If you would like to participate in the program, please click the link or scan the QR code, fill out the form and submit payment:
