Urban Forestry - The Trees of Tacoma

The Urban Forestry Program is part of the Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability. We see caring for Tacoma's urban forest as an important part of growing a sustainable, healthy, and vibrant city.

 

Trees provide many benefits and collectively Tacoma's urban forest is a valuable asset that if maintained will continue to provide benefits to the community members of Tacoma for generations to come.

 

Help Grow Tacoma's Urban Forest 

The goal of the Urban Forestry Program is to increase the tree canopy cover from approximately 19 percent (based on a 2009 analysis) to 30 percent in 2030. This will be achieved by planting trees with help from partner organizations and community members and by preserving existing healthy trees.

 

We invite you to help grow Tacoma's urban forest. This fall, we are offering two tree planting incentive programs, a free tree give-away for planting in the right-of-away and a tree coupon program for planting in front and back yards.
