HOW NEIGHBORHOOD STREET TREE PLANTINGS WORK:


NEIGHBORHOOD PLANTINGS AWARDS ARE THE MAIN WAY WE GET NEW STREET TREES PLANTED IN PROVIDENCE!

  • The program is an opportunity each Spring & Fall for a group of residents/business-owners to apply to receive 5-25 free street trees in exchange for helping to plant and take care of the young trees.

  • To organize a planting, someone acts as the “Tree Leader.” They organize and submit the application, and are the main contact and coordinator for the planting. Everyone who signs up to receive a tree, commits to help plant the trees on planting day and to water their trees for the first 2 growing seasons.

  • Awarded plantings take place on Saturdays in April (for the Spring application) or October (for the Fall Application)

 

              •  Applications for Spring Plantings are due on January 31st

              •  Applications for Fall Plantings are due on July 15th
