A set-back planting refers to the practice of planting public trees, for the common good, beyond the public right of way and on private property. Its goal is to plant trees in larger volumes of soil where they have better conditions under which to survive, thrive and achieve their full potential. Also, home-owners are responsible for the full care and removal of the tree after it is installed. This relieves the municipality of the costly burden of the tree’s upkeep and any attendant problems caused by root related sidewalk repairs. It’s a win-win situation for tax-payers.
