Leon County is proud to offer the 2017 Adopt-A-Tree public tree planting program. If you live inside Leon County, but outside of Tallahassee city limits, you may qualify to have an Eastern Red-cedar planted on your property for free. The Eastern Red-cedar is a large maturing evergreen tree, keeping its foliage year-round.
If you agree to water the tree three times a week for one year, Leon County Public Works will plant the tree anywhere between your house and any publicly-maintained road or any privately maintained road with public access. To have a tree planted on your property between February and March 2017, simply fill out an application online below and place a wooden stake at the desired location. Public Works will try to get as close to the designated area as possible. One tree per household per year will be planted.
The application deadline is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
