​​​​​​Caring for our Trees Together

Neighborhood organizations can apply for up to $3,000 to assist with tree care in their community, including trees located on private properties and in common areas, reducing the impact of cankerworms and the emerald ash borer through banding and treatment. There is no income eligibility to receive a Tree Care Grant.​

Applications are accepted once per year. Tree Care projects may run concurrently with open Neighborhood Matching Grant projects. The current application deadline is September 1, 2018.


Required Pre-application Workshops

Neighborhoods interested in participating in the Tree Care Program must attend a pre-application workshop. Miss the last session? No problem! Just catch up online!
