Planting Trees in the City

Neighborhood Tree PlantingDo you have space for more trees? The Urban Tree Canopy Program offers direct tree planting projects in some neighborhoods, a Treebate incentive, and partners with Friends of Trees to offer reduced-cost trees. One of these opportunities may be a good fit for you. You can also visit the Urban Tree Resources page for more information about planting and taking care of trees.

On average, a mature tree can capture over 500 gallons of stormwater each year. That’s why trees are a valuable part of our urban infrastructure and a good way to keep our rivers and streams clean. Find out more about why trees are a good deal for you and the community at the Benefits of Urban Trees page.
