Urban Tree Canopy Grant Program
In late 2019, the City of Euclid’s Department of Planning and Development was successful in securing a grant in the amount of $47,500.00 from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission’s Urban Tree Canopy Grant Program. This grant allowed the city to remove over 45 dead or dying ash trees infested with emerald ash borer, and prune of 370 small diameter trees located in public right-of-ways. To meet the grants required match, the city planted new trees as a part our annual spring tree planting program. This is an ongoing project and this year over 150 new trees have been planted. The Department of Planning and Development would like to acknowledge the efforts and assistance of the Mayor’s Office, the Shade Tree Commission, City Arborists Andre Trapp and Chris Grant, and Park Manager Joe O’Donnell for helping us keep Euclid a leader in sustainability, greenspace improvements and urban forestry.
