The city is really getting serious about making our humble burgh a greener place. If you call 311 and request it, they'll put a tree in front of your house for free. The city's CityTrees website has info on this program as well as how to get free perennials, pictures of the trees they suggest, and information about their care and upkeep. Urbs in Horto, man, Urbs in Horto.
