Public Planting Projects

Trees not only enhance the Town with natural beauty, they also: reduce air pollution, filter dust, prevent soil erosion, improve surface drainage, provide cooling shade and minimize flooding. Some of the Town’s public planting projects include the following:

  • Pitt Street Bridge
  • Memorial Waterfront Park
  • Town Hall
  • Hwy 17 streetscape
  • Coleman Blvd streetscape
  • Future Capital Projects

Power Line Undergrounding Program

In the interest of good practice with regards to tree protection and preservation, undergrounding of utilities is an important part of Take Root. Further benefits of placing power lines underground include aesthetics of reducing the presence of power lines and making them less susceptible to outages during a storm. This program is funded through Tree Bank Mitigation Funds, a fund agreement with Dominion Energy, and Capital Projects funding. Undergrounding projects in the Town include the following:
