In an effort to rejuvenate boulevards along streets in Mandan, the city’s forestry department is offering select residents the opportunity to replant boulevard trees, which have been removed due to Dutch elm disease.
This one-time opportunity, which covers planting, staking and mulching, is being offered at no cost to residents living on Sixth Avenue Northwest and First Street Northwest.
Homeowners will be asked to water the trees to establish a healthy root system, as well as take responsibility for future maintenance.
The city mailed letters to residents living in the eligible areas last month. Interested individuals should call 701-751-7894 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, by March 30.
Mandan continues to offer a separate tree-planting program, with partial reimbursement to all residents interested in planting boulevard trees.
The homeowner is responsible for the purchase and planting of city-verified trees, and a city arborist will inspect the site once the planting takes place.
Individuals may be reimbursed up to $50 per tree, with a maximum of $300 per property. A copy of the original sales receipt must be mailed to the forestry department, 411 Sixth Ave S.W.
