Application Deadline for Grit City Trees Program Extended to September 20


Grit City Trees is the City of Tacoma’s free street tree giveaway program, and the deadline for the 2019 season has been extended to Friday, September 20, for individuals and group applications. The goal of the program is to increase tree canopy and beautify neighborhoods through community building by providing free street trees to Tacoma homeowners who are interested in planting in the right-of-way.


Residents are encouraged to work with their neighborhoods to apply for trees as a group, and individuals are invited to submit applications as well. Successful neighborhood group applications are eligible to have trees delivered in mid-October. For those with successful individual applications, trees will be available for pick up at the City nursery in the fall.


Interested residents must fill out the Grit City Trees application form, and the corresponding tree care agreement must be signed by all participating property owners. These trees are for planting in the right-of-way only, and species availability is limited.
