Johnny Appleseed Program 2021

The city of Oakwood and Oakwood Beautification Committee will again offer trees for purchase through the Johnny Appleseed Street Tree Planting Project. Applications and detailed brochures describing the project and the tree species will be available in mid to late September at the OCC and on the City website. Oakwood property owners may choose from four or five varieties of trees.
The Johnny Appleseed Street Tree Project began in 1976 in an effort to support the City of Oakwood’s commitment to urban forestry and the environment. To date, this program has been responsible for planting over 3,021 trees. Below are the highlights of the program:

  • Cost of the  selected species are discounted 50% to Oakwood   residents. Trees must  be planted  in the city right-of-way.

  • A Homeowner can purchase a tree to be planted on private property at 100% of the cost.

  • Species  of trees  will be 1 3/4” in  diameter and are excellent for planting.

  • The areas of Oakwood that need trees the most, as determined by the City, will be given first priority.

  • One tree will be allocated at the 50% discount  for each approved property site.

  • Tree species selections are well suited for planting and most are resistant to disease.

  • The tree will be guaranteed for one growing season by the nursery who plants it.
