Reserve Your Free Tree!

MGI 2021 Giveaway.png

Each year, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks hosts a Tree Giveaway as part of the Mayor’s Greening Initiative, a collective effort of volunteers and neighbors to increase tree canopy throughout the city.

For the 2021 event, Burton Heights residents are invited to claim a free young tree to plant on private property through our Tree Giveaway.

We hope that by removing the barrier of cost, more of our neighbors will be able to plant and experience the many benefits that trees provide!

Oh, bummer!

While we love that you want to plant a tree, the Tree Giveaway is reserved for Grand Rapids city residents. In this way, we are able to help neighbors increase our city's tree canopy.

We encourage you to sign up for our newsletter to learn about park and tree volunteer projects, tree care resources, and special events. Thank you for your support!
