Intown Atlanta is known for its tree-lined streets. But we’re losing the old growth quickly due to the loss of old trees and so much new construction. Trees planted by residents in their yards are important in helping maintain our tree canopy, creating a healthier environment for all of us including the wildlife that calls Intown Atlanta home.
As a result of a supplement grant to the partnership between the City of Atlanta and Trees Atlanta NeighborWoods program, Trees Atlanta can now, for the Virginia Highland, Poncey Highland, Midtown, Morningside/Lenox, and Druid Hills neighborhoods, provide free trees for residents to plant in front, side and/or in the back yard of their property.
Typically Trees Atlanta provides trees for the right-of-ways/city property and the front yards of homes. Follow this link to learn more about the program and to request your trees. Trees Atlanta staff will also come to your home and advise you on the best trees to plant, placement and care. You can place your order at any time and Trees Atlanta will help decide the appropriate time to plant.
