Grit City Trees

Grit City Trees - Free Street Tree Giveaway Program

The deadline for the fall 2018 Grit City Trees, Tacoma's street tree giveaway program, has now passed. We received requests for more than 450 trees. We are currently reviewing the applications and we will be in touch with applicants in late September with specific program details.

This program provides free trees to Tacoma homeowners who are interested in planting in the right-of-way. The goal of the program is to increase tree canopy and beautify neighborhoods through community building and tree planting. We encourage Tacoma residents to work with their neighbors to apply for trees as a group. For questions, email us at trees@cityoftacoma.org or call us at (253) 591-5213.

Important Reminders:  TAGRO

  • Grit City Trees are for the right-of-way only.
  • One bag of TAGRO will be provided with each tree.  
  • Applicants should call 8-1-1 before they dig to ensure that utilities are marked.
  • Species availability is limited.
  • Neighborhood groups will have trees delivered to the designated house.
