The deadline is nearing for Tree Frederick applications! City residents are reminded to submit an application by Sunday, February 28, 2021, for this year's program.
Tree Frederick helps homeowners purchase containerized trees through a 50-50 cost-share. Most of the trees will cost homeowners about $15 each, depending on species and size available, with the City picking up the remainder of the cost. The effort will ultimately increase tree canopy in the City, help improve air and water quality, and might even help homeowners reduce energy costs. According to the 2016 Tree Canopy Assessment, the City’s canopy is about 20 percent, short of the 40 percent goal.
Depending on the weather and to get trees out at the beginning of the growing season, there will be a pick-up event in March or early April. Participants will be notified by email of the date as spring approaches.
