Neighborhood groups, individuals and organizations can apply to receive free trees for planting in specific Fort Worth locations.

The city’s Parks and Community Services Department is accepting applications through Sept. 1 for the 2009-10 Tree Grant Program, sponsored by the Forestry Section.

Field-grown, balled and burlapped (B&B) trees and 10- and 15-gallon container-grown trees are available free for transplanting on public property in Fort Worth. The B&B trees are available during the dormant season – usually December through March – but the container-grown trees can be planted throughout spring.

These locations are eligible to receive trees:

  • street medians
  • nonresidential parkways
  • public parks
  • Fort Worth Trinity Trails
  • other public property, including fire and police stations, libraries and schools.

To learn more, visit the Forestry Section’s Web site or call 817-392-5739.
