Summer Update

Thank you for your interest in greening Los Angeles! Given the heat, City Plants has paused all tree plantings, deliveries, and adoptions over the summer, but we will resume all programming in the fall. Our goal is to plant the right tree in the right place and ensure trees are set up to survive. The best time to plant trees is in the fall, winter, and spring. You can still apply for free trees now, and we will keep your application on record and resume planting, adoptions, and deliveries this fall. While you wait, we encourage you to continue watering and caring for trees in your neighborhood. Thanks for your patience!

New! Try the new interactive yard tree tool to discover the best planting locations in your yard to reduce your energy bills.

We provide free trees for LA residents!

Select the type of tree you’d like and see if you qualify:

We plant them for you! Sign up to get street trees planted in the parkway (that space between the sidewalk and the street) in front of your home, apartment, business, or school.

Tree Ambassador Program

The Tree Ambassador – Promotor Forestal Program is a grassroots, bilingual community organizing pilot program dedicated to amplifying community voices and planting trees in historically disinvested communities in Los Angeles.
