Does Anthem plant trees on my property?
Anthem, the developer, does not plant trees on private property. However, Chelsea is part of the Complete Streets initiative, where trees are planted in the road right of way along each street.
The road right of way (or boulevard) adjacent to your property is land that is actually owned by the City, and maintained by you. The City uses this land for snow stock piling, road maintenance or other items as required.
See the next question for more details.
What is the complete streets tree planting program?
Complete Streets is an initiative designed to enhance residential streets with added colour, shade and natural protection by planting and caring for trees along public roads.
Anthem, and then afterward the City of Chestermere, will maintain these trees but the grass below them is up to you, so plan for some extra passes with the mower every now and then.
