Request/adopt a tree

Do you know a place in Greater New Orleans desperately in need of a tree or a grove or a thicket? Let us know, so we can plant trees where they’re needed most.

We plant the following types of trees:

  • Live oak
  • Shumard oak
  • Nutall oak
  • Cypress
  • Sweetbay magnolia
  • Japanese magnolia
  • Southern magnolia
  • Crepe myrtle
  • Swamp red maple
  • Green ash
  • Athena elm
  • Eastern Redbud

While we’re eager to hear where you want trees planted, we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to plant in the location you suggest, nor can we guarantee the type of tree you request. We’ll be planting trees on public thoroughfares, including nature strips (the section between the sidewalk and the street) as well as in front yards where tree planting will improve the community streetscape. For some areas, we’ll need to get approval from the city before we can proceed, and we must also abide by city guidelines on the types of trees we plant.

Waterers needed

We also need your help in caring for the trees we plant. Will you consider adopting a tree or a grove? Maybe your block or local neutral ground or the place where youwalk your dog is crying out for some greenery. If we plant a tree there, will you agree to look after that tree for its first tender year? All that’s required is a little watering and attention to ensure each tree thrives. You can even get together with neighbors to share the work and the fun, or how about getting your local neighborhood association members to take on a grove or thicket?

So, fill in the form below and let us know where we need to plant and whether you’ll adopt a tree or two.
