If you choose to remain on the wait-list and a tree becomes available for you, we will notify you by email as soon as possible. Most trees given to people on the wait-list become available after the first workshop, as participants release their trees for a variety of reasons. After all of the trees have been picked up, we will alert everyone still on the wait-list and encourage you to try again next year!
This program is the city’s way of engaging residents to plant and maintain healthy trees in their yards and along their local street areas that will grow to provide benefits to everyone. All participants go through an educational training before receiving trees for their yard or street tree location. We also focus the program on planting trees in storm water basins that contribute runoff to streams which are plagued by water quality problems and erosion; slowing storm water runoff before entering these streams and intercepting storm water before it gets a chance to runoff into these streams improves water quality in these basins.

You should also know where your side sewer line is located before digging your planting hole. If you are unsure where your side sewer is, you may call the city's Engineering Services Department at 253-841-5577 or hire a private utility locate service. Plant your tree at least 7.5-10 feet away from your sewer and water lines.
In addition, your planting strip must be wide enough to accommodate the species you chose (see minimum planting strip widths on the available trees list). The city does not allow trees in planter strips between the curb and sidewalk if the planter strip is narrower than 4 feet. Trees planted under power lines must be less than 25 feet at maturity (small shade tree).
The city will also consider the proximity of other trees in the area, make sure new trees are planted far enough apart that they have room to grow, and make sure they are not too close to structures like driveways. Not all locations are suitable for a tree. If your street tree permit is denied, we may be able to work with you to select a more appropriate tree for your planting strip (depending on species availability). You are allowed to apply for up to three (3) trees, so consider all of the available planting locations around your property before completing your application.
These trees are maintained by the city - email the city's Certified Arborist to make a request to prune a city-maintained street tree from the city's list.
However, bare root trees do have the down-side of loosing a large quantity of their fine, fibrous roots when they are dug out of a planting field by the tree supplier and shipped to the city; the result is a slower growing tree in the first year or two of planting them in their permanent location as they set new roots. If you plant the trees following the instructions provided at the training prior to receiving your tree(s) and water the trees thoroughly during our dry summer, you will have a tree that will outgrow most containerized trees following the 1-2 year establishment period.
