What can I plant in my parking strip?
There are many tree varieties that vary in size, color and shape approved for planting in your park strip. The best choice for you will depend on the planting space available, whether overhead utility is present, and your particular location within the City. The Ogden City Tree Selection Guide is a great reference to get you started.

Because you will need a permit to plant, please contact Public Works at 801-629-8271 after you have reviewed options in the Selection Guide and the Ogden City Tree Matrix.

Information you will need for the permit is: park strip width (distance between curb and sidewalk) and overall length, the presence of overhead utility lines in the vicinity of the proposed planting area, location of drive and sidewalk approaches and locations and types of any signs within the park strip area.
