City Of Orlando Giving Away Trees For Earth Day

Orlando residents can order not one, but two free trees from the City Of Orlando in honor of Earth Day, April 22, 2022.



Residents who live within the city limits can order here through the Energy-Saving Trees Program.


Orlando residents just need to enter their address, outline their home in the gray box, select a tree and pinpoint where they would like to plant the tree.


Once ordered, the tree will be delivered to your home.


This year’s tree selections include red maple, tulip trees, drake elm, eastern red cedar, and tonto crepe myrtle.


The program is part of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer's Green Works Orlando initiative. If every resident planted a tree in the city, its tree canopy would increase from 25% to 40%, which is equivalent to taking about 40,000 cars off the road, according to the program's website.


The program also helps residents understand the best place to plant their trees to clean the air, increase property value, lower energy bills and shade homes.
