Trees: The gift of green

Planting a tree on your tree lawn or gifting a tax-deductible memorial tree in a Bay Village city park is no longer a mystery. The Bay Village Tree Commission is taking the guesswork out of the process.

The commission has a master planting plan for each street in Bay Village. Citizens can purchase a tree that is in the plan by contacting the Bay Village Service Department. Once the order for the tree is placed, city arborist Mike Polinski will arrange for the Service Department to install the new tree. Gifting a memorial tree requires the same process. In addition, the city of Bay Village will engrave a memorial plaque that will honor your special someone.

Trees are more than just beautiful green gifts. They help our neighborhoods by soaking up storm water, lessening air pollution, shading our homes and providing a haven for birds and wildlife. Trees make Bay Village a great place to come home to!

For more information about how to have a tree planted on your tree lawn or to gift a memorial tree planting in Cahoon Park, visit the Tree Commission webpage in the City Government section at, or call the Bay Village Service Department, 440-871-1221.
