It's time to get your free street trees!

Posted: 2/27/2024 3:02:43 PM

The City of Coeur d'Alene has a number of street trees that need good homes! Street trees are planted at residential locations within public right-of-way areas in the city limits through the CDA Re-Leaf program. Trees are planted at no cost to the homeowner to enhance our neighborhoods and provide many street-side benefits such as mitigating storm water and reducing pollution.

Trees are provided to homeowners who are willing to provide care, including watering and protecting from mowers and trimmers. The tree species still available are Emerald Sunshine Elm, Black Tupelo, English Oak and Greenspire linden. However, a limited number of powerline rated trees are available for those with powerlines over their planting space.

Interested homeowners may contact the Urban Forester with the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department and sign up for a street tree. Due to the limited number of trees, distribution will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to apply for this program is March 29, 2024. The trees will be planted by a contract tree planting crew starting in April.

For more information, please visit under urban forestry Re-leaf. You can also send an email to [email protected] or call the Urban Forestry division of the Parks Department at 769-2266 to claim your free tree today. These trees cannot be used to fulfill street tree requirements/for a refund.
