The form below will put your address on a list to be inspected and considered for a tree planting. Determination is made at that time as to suitability and need for a tree at that site by the Tree Warden.

Please call the Public Works Department at 860-446-4127. The trees are generally planted in the spring time.
The City of Groton chooses trees that are able to sustain dry spells and survive our unique urban climate; however, their establishment is dependent on how they do during the first few years of life. Young trees require a substantial amount of water to thrive. Public Works dispatches crews to water newly planted trees, but depends on Groton City residents to water their street trees during dry spells.
For new trees, water immediately after the tree is planted and twice weekly for the first summer and until early December. A newly planted tree will need approximately 15-20 gallons of water per week.
During the first couple growing seasons, your newly planted tree is expending a lot of energy trying to get its roots established in the soil. Especially during the first few summers of your new tree's life, it will have a difficult time dealing with heat and drought. You can make this easier by providing water and covering the soil. Deep watering can help speed the root establishment, which consists of keeping the soil moist to a depth that includes all the roots.
Not enough water is harmful for the tree, but too much water can also cause issues. The ideal condition is damp soil that dries for a short period to allow adequate oxygen to permeate the soil.
Minimize stressors to trees such as pet waste, salt and de-icing chemicals. Protect the trunk from tape and bikes. Cigarette butts, litter, and weeds should be removed promptly as well.
