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 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!

The first Quarterly Tree Giveaway for 2016 was held on Saturday, March 26th at Riverland Park (950 SW 27 Avenue). 

Due to staffing, the Quarterly Tree Giveaways scheduled for the remainder of fiscal year 2016 (June & September) have been placed on a temporary hold. The website will be updated once resumed; please utilize it to keep abreast of tree giveaway status updates. You can also check the City's event calendar periodically as it will also include the date, time and location of the next tree giveaway.  

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.  For additional details, please call 954-828-6137 or email anicholas@fortlauderdale.gov.
