The city’s Urban Forestry Division has partnered with the National Arbor Day Foundation and Florida Forest Service to present the Community Canopy Program, where Winter Park residents can order a FREE tree from Urban Forestry. City residents have the option to choose from several different tree species including bald cypress, chaste tree, dahoon holly and sweetbay magnolia. The one-gallon tree will then be delivered free directly to the resident’s doorstep along with instructions on planting and care. Please join in the city’s efforts to expand and maintain Winter Park’s storied tree canopy by beautifying your property with a free tree that will benefit generations to come. Trees around homes will not only help reduce the amount of energy your home requires, but they also add to your property value, reduce your carbon footprint, improve the air quality, and more effectively catch stormwater runoff. In less than 10 minutes, you can reserve your FREE tree and save some green.
The city is committed to a greener, healthier environment and proud to provide you with one FREE tree to further this endeavor! Have some fun year-round with your family by planting a tree together!
