Street trees are an important asset to the urban environment providing a range of benefits that are vital to Lehi City's quality of life. Without street trees, the city is a sterile landscape of concrete, brick, steel, and asphalt. Picture the City of Lehi without any trees and you see a pretty grim picture. We want the trees you plant today to be here for the future. Therefore, a tree-planting permit is required to encourage the right tree in the right place to,1) Maximize all of the tree benefits they provide, 2) Protect public safety, 3) Maximize diversity of species to reduce pests populations if they arise, 4) Help promote the long term survival and healthy of your trees, and 5) Reduced possible future conflicts with infrastructure and utilities. Final verification of street tree species and planting sites requires approval from Lehi City Parks Department to advise applicant of possible elements that have a bearing on street trees and to help reduce possible future conflicts that may cause your tree to be removed.
