BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - With summer on its way, it is the perfect time to beautify your street. Officials with the Bismarck Forestry Division gave a seminar on its Partners in Planting program Saturday to reimburse a homeowner for planting a tree on their street.

The program offers up to a $100 rebate for each recommended tree planted on a boulevard.

Planting does require a permit, but it is free of charge.

“Getting a permit, you’re gonna make sure you’re getting your tree planted in the right place, and that it’s not gonna be a problem down the road hopefully as far as location goes. And just making sure you’re planting a proper species and something that’s hopefully gonna do well and live a long life,” said Bismarck Forestry Programs Coordinator Christy Ames-Davis.
