Description:

Request a Grant Writer

In-kind grants of trees, planting assistance, and care information to encourage Washington residents in eligible locations to plant trees in residential neighborhoods. The grant program engages residents to plant and maintain healthy trees in their yards and along the street. These trees will provide community benefit by making the neighborhoods healthier, cleaning the air, and helping the streets become more walkable. Eligible applicants are residents of Seattle. Assistance includes appropriate tree selection, training on proper care and planting, assistance applying for necessary permits, care reminders and pruning help, and street tree evaluations for the first few years.

When you participate in Trees for Neighborhoods, you receive:

  • Help selecting the right tree and planting location
  • Free trees (up to 4 per household, lifetime max of 6)
  • A watering bag & mulch for each tree
  • Training on proper planting and care
  • Assistance applying for street tree planting permits
  • Ongoing care reminders and future pruning workshop opportunities
  • Planting assistance (on a limited basis due to COVID-19 concerns) and delivery assistance if you need physical help or lack access to a vehicle
  • Street tree evaluations for the first couple of years to let you know how your trees are doing

A well-placed tree can help conserve energy, provide a visual screen, and provide years of beauty. However, a tree placed in the wrong place can be harmful and potentially expensive! The small tree you plant today will someday grow tall and its roots may be as expansive as the tree's branches. For additional information about tree selection, see: http://www.seattle.gov/trees/planting-and-care/trees-for-neighborhoods/2020-species
