Front Yard Tree Program

Trees Atlanta created our Yard Tree Program in partnership with the City of Atlanta and have now established a similar programs with Sandy Springs and Chamblee. 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 in those two cities.
