Adopt-a-Tree is a program that rescues trees small and/or young trees from properties that are slated for development, are no longer wanted by a homeowner, or from a community event. We save the trees and provide them at no cost to community members. These trees and other native plants are available to ‘adopt’ by residents, schools, parks, and other interested organizations.

Adopting a Tree

If you are interested in ‘adopting’ a tree, we can provide you a list of current inventory. Please email for the list. Anyone interested in ‘adopting’ a tree is required to come pick up their tree.

Donating a Tree

If you have a healthy tree that you no longer want on your property and are looking to donate it to the Adopt-a-Tree program, please email with the type of a tree and a photo. We accept trees based on their size.


The Adopt-a-Tree program needs volunteers to help dig out the trees and plants from properties. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteer application found on our Volunteer page.
