The Shade Tree Commission has an annual tree planting program. A suggested donation of $375 and your pledge to care for and water your tree will place your application on our first-come, first-serve tree planting list. This list is subject to available budget and not every applicant is guaranteed a tree. Click here to complete the online application and consent form.

To plant a street tree in front of your property with your own contractor (outside of the Shade Tree Commission tree planting program), request a tree permit from the Shade Tree Commission and Department of Climate Action & Innovation. Click here to learn how to obtain a tree permit. Click here for the Shade Tree Commission tree planting specifications (§168-15 Planting of trees along streets).
