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

new trees at Ventura Park


Environmental Services provides free trees and four 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. 

East of 82nd Avenue & Jade District 

For properties on or east of 82nd Avenue and properties in the Jade District, we are offering free tree planting on private property as well as in the public right-of-way. We will work with you to plant trees where they benefit you the most. We can plant trees in existing landscape areas or remove asphalt to make space for new treesLong-term care of all trees planted is the responsibility of the property owner.
