At a recent village council meeting, Stephanie Miller, Regional Urban Forester of the Ohio Division of Forestry discussed tree lawns and the tree blueprint for the Village.
Tree lawn needs to be of adequate size to support having a tree. Less than 4’ is normally not large enough area to support a tree. 4’ to 6’ tree lawns could support a small tree. Need to take into consideration any other items that could be placed underground in the tree lawn, for example, utilities.
