Thinking about buying a new tree for your yard? Before you buy, check out one of the City's multiple 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 achieve our goal of 23.6% canopy cover in the City by 2018.
Fort Lauderdale has three separate programs which each provide residents with Florida-friendly trees for FREE. The Adopt-a-tree program provides a tree that homeowners plant in the swale in front of their property, the Save-a-tree Plant-a-tree program offers a tree to residents who switch to e-billing for their monthly City utilities bill, and the quarterly tree giveaways 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!
