About this Event

Be like a tree.

Stand tall and proud.

Stay Grounded.

Connect with your roots.

Keep growing.

Have hope. Together, we've got this.

We know you may be experiencing fear, anxiety, and confusion about what comes next and how to stay safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Planting a tree is one simple, restorative step you can take right now to feel grounded, stay connected, and grow a healthy future for you, your family, your neighbors, and your community while Safer at Home orders are in place for the City of Los Angeles.

You may be used to seeing City Plants partners hosting tree adoptions at local community events throughout the City of Los Angeles. In response to COVID-19, City Plants Collaborative is offering limited free fruit and shade tree "virtual adoptions" to bring trees straight to you, thanks to the LA Department of Water and Power.

To adopt free trees:

  1. Register here & fill out the short application
  2. City Plants Partners will contact you within two weeks via phone or email and walk you through the tree selection process
  3. Trees will be delivered straight to your door, with an instructional guide on how to plant and care for your new trees

Things to know:

  • All trees will be adopted on a first come, first-served basis.
  • Only residents within the City of Los Angeles are eligible to adopt a tree. Proof of residence will be verified. If you are not certain whether you live within the City of LA and its 15 council districts, please verify here.
  • City Plants has a limited number of species available at this time, depending on what we have available in stock and what we can procure from nurseries. For a sense of the shade tree species we have available, visit our Yard Tree Species List. Available fruit tree species will be shared once we reach out to you.
  • Once adopted, trees must be planted in the ground on private property, in your front or back yard. There is a limit of seven trees per property within the City Plants program.
  • The City Plants Collaborative has taken necessary precautions to ensure your safety and the safety of staff with this program during COVID-19. Tree teams are following health and safety protocols, as outlined by Mayor Eric Garcetti in the Safer at Home Emergency Order.

In addition to the yard tree delivery and "virtual adoption" program, City Plants is still planting free street trees during COVID-19 to strengthen your whole neighborhood. To sign up, fill out our Free Street Tree Application today.
