City of Coeur d'Alene:

Cost-Share Program for Residential Street Trees

 

Street trees provide many environmental, economic and social benefits to our beautiful community. Property owners are responsible for caring for the trees next to their property including pruning and removal of dead, dying, or hazardous trees. The City of Coeur d’Alene has developed this cost-sharing program to help with some of the costs associated with maintaining these residential street trees.

Cost-Share Program Requirements

  • The property must be single-family residential and within the city limits of Coeur d’Alene
  • Only trees located in the public city right-of-ways will be eligible for reimbursement (widths vary)
  • A current city-licensed tree service must do all of the work. The City will reimburse property owner after Final inspection and acceptance.
  • Trees can only be removed with prior City of Coeur d’Alene approval, and the replacement tree(s) must be provided by the abutting property owner. Not all removal requests are approved.
  • Applications must be submitted and approved before any work begins

Reimbursement is made on a first-come, first-serve basis from available funds. If funds are not available, a waiting list will be set up until additional funds become available. The City will reimburse 50%, up to $200, per tree for pruning, and 50%, up to $400, for tree removal. A maximum reimbursement of $600 is available per parcel within a 36-month time period.
