Tree Adoptions

Don’t want to wait for a yard tree delivery?

City Plants partners attend nearly 200 community events throughout the year to distribute free yard trees to Angelenos. Find us at a community event near you and take home your very own 5-gallon yard tree that same day to plant on private property. Check out our calendar to find the next event closest to you.

If your address yields information with the council district number, then you are a resident. If your address is not found, you do not reside in the City proper. If you postal address says “Los Angeles” it is possible that you live in an unincorporated area of LA County, meaning that your neighborhood is not a part of an official city.
