Now you can get involved in the effort to increase our urban canopy by participating in the City of San Diego's “Free Tree” program. This program allows residents to engage with the City for our mutual benefit by creating a more livable and beautiful environment.
San Diegans can get a new tree, free of charge - all you have to do is identify a space in the public right-of-way that could benefit from a new tree and request a tree either by emailing [email protected] or calling 619-527-7500. City horticulturists will evaluate the space and determine an appropriate tree selection.
It’s a great deal – San Diegans can get a newly planted neighborhood tree appropriate for the community’s character for free and all we ask in return is that you sign a watering agreement vouching to water the tree for three years while it grows.
