Nominations Open for This Year's Landscape Improvement Award

Nominations for Edmond’s Landscape Improvement Award are now open and will be accepted until September 1st. Home owner associations/neighborhood groups that have enhanced their neighborhood environment through the planting of trees and other landscaping are eligible to enter for a chance to receive additional trees and recognition signage for their outstanding efforts.
Neighborhood groups that are located within Edmond City Limits may apply with a project that was completed between August 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021.  Landscape projects that enhance the neighborhood environment are eligible, with greatest emphasis on tree plantings.  Trees installed through the Foster-A-Tree or Edmond Tree Grants programs do not qualify.  Projects must be located within Edmond City Limits, in neighborhood managed areas.


Neighborhood groups with an eligible project should fill out the Landscape Improvement Award form, available via the Landscape Improvement Award page. Basic information about the group and project, as well as photos of the finished project are required. The deadline for applications is September 1st.
The Edmond Urban Forestry Commission will review applications received by September 1st at their September meeting to select the winner. They will evaluate projects on design, implementation, aftercare, and the resulting impact made by the improvements.

The winning group will receive additional trees for their neighborhood, and the Landscape Improvement Award sign will be placed near their winning project during the following growing season.

Past recipients of the Landscape Improvement Award include Porches at Arbor Creek in 2020, Autumn Ridge in 2019, Fairfax in 2018, Autumn Ridge in 2017 and Villages at Coffee Creek in 2016.
