Become a Block Leader

Do you want your street lined with beautiful, green trees?

Become a City Plants Block Leader, and sign up your neighbors for our Street Tree program!

All you need to do is speak with your neighbors and have them sign Permission to Plant Forms, where they agree to have a tree planted on the street in front of their house and they agree to water the tree during its first five years.

City Plants will take care of the rest. We’ll send out one of our planting partners to site, permit, purchase, and plant trees for every neighbor who signs up. Each resident will get instructions on how to properly water and care for their new trees.

Wait for your new trees to be planted

We’ll connect you with the appropriate City Plants Tree Planting Partner that works in your area, obtain the permits from the City of Los Angeles, purchase the trees, and plant them for you and your neighbors (This can take between 3 – 6 months).

 


Enjoy and care for your new trees

Speak with your neighbors if you see any showing signs of distress
