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.

Street Trees

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:

Did you know that well-placed trees . . .

  • help stabilize the soil by controlling wind and water erosion
  • help reduce noise levels and cleanse pollutants
  • produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide
  • decrease residential energy consumption
  • provide habitat to wildlife

The Mayor and City Council have recognized these benefits and realize the need to protect their investment with a comprehensive urban forest management program. The City Service Department Division of Forestry is responsible for all city-owned trees. It monitors the planting, pruning and removal of trees on public property, which includes trees within the right of way (including on tree lawns), parks and around municipal buildings.

In Strongsville, more than 112,000 trees provide beauty and shade in our community.
