Applications available for The Edmond Tree Grants program

Edmond Tree Grants 23Applications are available for neighborhood groups and public schools or their associated parent/teacher organizations to receive trees, free of charge, as part of The Edmond Tree Grants program.

Administered by the City of Edmond Urban Forestry Department, eligible groups within Edmond city limits can apply to receive seedlings, 3-gallon or 15-gallon containerized trees for planting within the areas they manage, as well as a new street tree component for residences. Applications will be accepted while supplies last.

This partnership between the City and residents and schools aims to enhance tree canopy within areas often not served through other Urban Forestry Department programs.

“Trees are a valuable resource within the areas where people live and recreate, providing such benefits as improved air quality, cooler temperatures, UV ray protection, energy conservation, health benefits, beautification, and higher property values,” said Leigh Martin, City of Edmond Urban Forester.

The Edmond Tree Grants program fosters community understanding and engagement on and provides education about proper tree care and planting practices. Grant recipients work closely with the Urban Forestry Department to execute projects, potentially involve their communities or groups, and implement a maintenance plan.
