Get Street Trees Planted at a Multi-family Residential, Business, or Non-Profit Property

new trees at Ventura Park

Environmental Services provides free street trees and three years of establishment care (including watering) for commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential properties. We plant street trees in existing planting strips and cut-outs, and we create new concrete cut-outs where space allows. Street trees can be planted in frontages with or without curbs and sidewalks. As established by city code, long-term care of street trees is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner.

Interested in signing up? Fill out the form below to request an inspection at your property. Signing up for our program does not commit you to street trees. After you sign up, a City inspector will visit your property to determine the number and type of street trees that may be planted. We only plant trees with confirmation from the property representative. Please note that we cannot plant trees required as part of a private development permit.

Visit our Program Highlights page to learn about past planting projects.
