Providing Tree-Sources for Residents and Property Owners
This program is designed to increase Tacoma's canopy coverage, reduce stormwater runoff and beautify neighborhoods through community building planting projects. The City of Tacoma cannot use public funds in any way that may be construed as a gift to an individual or organization.
We no longer offer free trees to neighborhood groups for community plantings. For a limited time only, coupons for discounts on trees purchased from select local nurseries are available to Tacoma residents for planting on their private property or in the planting strip/areas abutting their property.
Coupons are limited to one per household and are good from September 2013 until April 2014.
To Receive a Coupon
Please contact us at (253) 591-2048 or email with your name, address and contact information. A coupon and educational materials about tree planting and growing will be sent to you if you're eligible (Tacoma residents only, please).
General information about tree care, including our care packet and copies of our workshop presentations, can be found on our Tree-sources page.
If you have questions, please feel free to send us an email or call us at (253) 591-2048.
