TREE SELECTION

We currently offer 10 choices of trees in our Free Tree Project, the majority of which are native but with a few that aren't. This allows you to select a tree appropriate for the location it's being planted in, and helps to keep our local canopy diverse. Tree diversity limits the loss of trees from disease and insects and increases the sustainability of our urban forest. And as arborists, it's our job to help keep trees healthy! If you’d like help in selecting a tree best suited to your specific location feel free to ask us, we’d be happy to help! Below you will find a brief description of the trees currently offered in our Free Tree Project. As we have partnered with a local nursery due to their quality stock, we cannot guarantee availability, but we try to keep the list as up-to-date as possible. We hope you enjoy choosing your tree!
