Adopt-A-Tree Program
The Buena Vista Tree Advisory Board oversees the Adopt-A-Tree Program. Trees are available to Town residents who are willing to care for and water a tree planted on Town property adjacent to their property. All trees are paid for and installed by the Town of Buena Vista. Other than the monthly charge for water usage, there will be no other charge to the property owner. The Tree Board will select the date for planting and notify the property owner of that planting date. The Tree Board will choose the tree species and sites. For more information contact our Public Works Director. Click here for the Adopt-A-Tree Program application.
