We’d like to share a unique opportunity for you to receive a FREE tree for your yard.
Through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation’s Community Canopy program, our Neighborhood Tree Program is giving away 500 trees this fall to help residents in our community lower energy costs, filter air and water, reduce stormwater runoff, slow climate change, and green our neighborhoods. This is an exclusive offer for residents of the City of Spokane.
Order your new tree while supplies last. Choose from a variety of species including kousa dogwood, amur maackia, eastern redbud, goldenrain tree, and Korean mountain ash. Your 2- to 4-foot tree will be shipped directly to your house, ready for planting, all at no charge. Watch this short video about what to expect and how to plant your new tree.
You can reserve your free tree today at www.arborday.org/spokane. Trees will be shipped directly to you in October.
On this site, you can use the online tool to determine the location in your yard to plant your new free tree for maximum savings on your energy bill. This tool will also show other benefits and savings that will result from planting your new tree. Trees must be planted within private property boundaries, not on any City of Spokane public property or along street right-of-way. In exchange for the free tree, you are expected to plant them in the location provided by the online tool and provide ongoing care and water.
Thank you for supporting a healthy community canopy and enhancing our urban forest.
