Long Beach Tree Planting Program
Street trees offer a number of benefits to the surrounding community such as improving air quality, urban cooling, reducing stormwater runoff, increasing property values, and many more. That's why the Office of Sustainability is proud to be part of the Tree Partnership.
Through this ongoing program, LB Sustainability will plant a tree in your parkway (between the sidewalk and street) for free! Many of the trees offered are drought-tolerant or California natives, and all of the trees are well-suited for parkway planting.
If you are a homeowner, business, or community/neighborhood group in Long Beach and are interested in finding out more information about Tree Partnership eligibility, contact either Public Works or the Office of Sustainability.
Note: Planting is put on hold during the summer months when it is too hot for newly planted trees to flourish. Applications received leading up to and during summer months will be eligible for planting in the fall.
