Adopt-a-Tree Initiative

Greening Milwaukee is a non-profit organization dedicated to making Milwaukee greener by showing people how easy it is to plant trees and how planting trees can have many positive effects- both on people and the environment. And we’ll be happy to give you a tree – for free!

The Adopt-a-Tree Initiative provides free trees to urban homeowners who agree to learn tree planting, care, and maintenance techniques. Trees are typically varieties of oak and are distributed as "whips" in the spring. Whips are bare root seedlings about 2 feet in length.

To qualify for a free tree you must reside and own property in the City of Milwaukee and own space to support a large shade tree (approximately 20 feet from any foundations, property lines, overhead wires or other trees).

Please complete the information below if you are interested in receiving a free tree.  You will be contacted when trees become available.
