Trees for Seattle!

Starting July 13, 2020 free trees and planting info/guidelines will be made available from the city.

From the Trees for Seattle page at

“Evaluate your planting site and this year’s tree options. Select the tree best suited for your space.

  • Backyard space? Choose the largest tree appropriate for the site to maximize the benefits to your yard and neighborhood.
  • Planting along the street? Review the minimum planting strip width requirements before selecting your tree.
  • Under power lines? Select one of the power line approved trees that reaches a maximum height of 25 feet.

The power line approved trees are the most popular species we offer. Please apply for power line approved trees only if you are planting under power lines.”
