The Washington Square West Trust will grant a reimbursement of up $1000 to any home or investment property owner who removes a fruit-bearing gingko tree from his/her property located in Washington Square West and replaces it with another tree from the approved list of street trees by the Fairmont Park Commission, working through the Greening Committee of the Washington Square West Civic Association (WSWCA) or other intermediary approved by the Trust. Bare root replacement trees are not eligible for reimbursement under this program. Payment will be made directly to the property owner by the Trust only after the Greening Committee or other intermediary confirms that the offending tree has actually been removed and replaced; therefore it is important to contact the Greening Committee or other intermediary before the gingko tree is removed. Email us at the address below for more information. This program is limited to one grant per home or investment property in Washington Square West.
