The Covington Tree Board was established to counsel the City with regard to the preservation, pruning, planting and replanting of trees and shrubs in parks, along streets, and in other public areas. Of special interest is the care and maintenance of Covington's Live Oak canopy.  While the City encourages the planting of trees, all proposed plantings on public property must be approved by the CITY TREE BOARD. Proposals are to be submitted using the Application to Appear form found on this site. The form is also available from the Planning Department at City Hall. The completed form can be submitted to the Planning Department or emailed to the Tree Board at: [email protected] The applicant will be notified of the date to appear at an upcoming Tree Board meeting.
