Plant a Tree!

  • REQUEST A FREE TREE: Any property owner can request a free street tree by submitting a Service Request at NYC Parks or by calling 311.
  • PLANT A TREE ON YOUR OWN: You can plant a tree on your own by obtaining a Tree Planting Permit and hiring a landscape contractor. To apply for a free permit to plant a tree in front of your property, please follow our Permit Planting: Step-By-Step directions.
