Tree Montgomery - Free Trees on Private Property

Tree Montgomery provides free shade trees to property owners in Montgomery County. The program also plants and cares for the trees for up to two years free of charge. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is looking for places to plant shade trees on private land - residential, multi-family, parking lots, as well as HOA land and businesses.

When planted they will be 10-12 feet tall, and will grow to at least 50 feet in height.

The Tree Montgomery program will work with private property owners to select locations and species. The shade trees are planted in the spring and fall. Trees are not planted in the summer.

Along with providing the tree(s) and planting for free, if desired, Tree Montgomery will provide up to two years of free aftercare including watering, mulching, weeding and pruning.

Property owners interested in free shade trees should fill out the form on the website.
