Tree Montgomery is a new program to plant shade trees – for free. The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is looking for places to plant, especially in yards of single family homes, parking lots, and multi-family communities. We’re also targeting areas where there is a lot of development, little tree canopy, or a real need for shade. The County will install shade trees and give them some after care; all for free. When installed, the trees will be 10 to 12 feet tall and will eventually be more than 50 feet tall, providing you with decades of shade. Funding for Tree Montgomery is provided through the Tree Canopy Law.
If you’re interested in a free shade tree, sign up now! Simply input the address where you want to plant a shade tree below to start the application.
Please note: Street trees are planted by the Montgomery County Division of Highway Services. To request a street tree, please call MC 311.
