Quarterly Tree Give-aways

Print

Old TreeThinking about buying a new tree for your yard?  Before you buy, check out one of the City's quarterly tree give away events.

Why would the City spend money on providing trees free of charge to residents?  It's simple: The more people we have planting trees, the more people we have working to maintain and improve upon our achieved canopy goal of 26.39% canopy coverage. 

Fort Lauderdale  provides residents with Florida-friendly trees for FREE. The City's quarterly tree giveaway events hand out two trees per resident four times a year.

For a list of trees that we commonly distribute at events, please scroll to the bottom of this page. The trees are all 3-gallon nursery stock and range from 2 feet to 4 feet tall. Remember to bring with you to events proof of residency of the City of Fort Lauderdale in the form of a license or a utility bill!

The Next City Quarterly Tree Giveaway event has been tentatively scheduled for January 27, 2018 at Osswald Park. More information will be posted on this page once available.

For additional details, please call 954-828-5785 or email the City Urban Forester at mawilliams@fortlauderdale.gov 

Note that not all tree species listed below may be present at the time of any particular giveaway, as this depends on sufficient nursery availability of high quality trees. For specific availability please contact the City Urban Forester 4-5 days prior to a scheduled tree giveaway event.

Please also note that trees received through this program are intended to be installed solely on private property, as they are too small to be installed within the right of way (ROW) swale areas. For information on the City's program for planting trees in the ROW swale, see the Adopt-a-Tree program.

Trees available previously at Tree Giveaways have included the following:

Small trees

Medium trees

Large trees

Fruit Trees
