graphic on the benefits of trees

Eligible Shoreline residents can apply to receive free trees through Trees for Shoreline, a pilot program aimed at growing and maintaining a healthy urban forest.

Trees are important for a healthy Shoreline. They provide a wide range of benefits to our environment, homes, and properties! When you participate in Trees for Shoreline, you receive:

  • Help with selecting the right tree and planting location
  • A watering bag and mulch for your tree
  • Training on proper planting and care
  • Ongoing care reminders
  • Planting assistance (on a limited basis due to volunteer availability)

The application period for Trees for Shoreline is open until August 15. There is a limit of one free tree per household. Depending on tree availability and program interest, not everyone who applies will receive a tree.

The types of trees available are listed in this 2022 Tree Guide flyer.

Apply by August 15!
