Front Yard Tree Program

Trees Atlanta created our Yard Tree Program in partnership with the City of Atlanta and have now established similar programs with the cities of Brookhaven, Chamblee, and Sandy Springs. Property owners in these cities are eligible to have us plant trees in your front yard at little or no cost to you. The program’s intent is to lower summer temperatures and reduce energy consumption by investing in tree canopy cover for neighborhoods.

To participate, please:

    1. Review the program guidelines below
    2. Click on your city to learn about the trees available (options vary by city): Atlanta, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Sandy Springs
    3. Fill out the “Submit Request” form
    4. If you have submitted your request but need to pay your APPLICATION FEE, please click the appropriate link: Brookhaven   Chamblee   (Not required for Sandy Springs or Atlanta programs)

NOTE: If you submitted a request last season but did not receive your trees, please contact Cate Hughes at In your email, please include your name, address, and phone number, and we’ll be sure to include you in our plantings this season!

After submitting a request, one of our NeighborWoods project coordinators will contact you for a consultation.
