Tree Folks provides several resources and tips on proper tree care and a native tree growing guide so you can be sure the tree you select is native and has the best chance of survival in our climate conditions.
The city's Drop by Drop landscape rebate program runs October 1- June 15. By planning a native garden with city staff, you may be eligible for up to $500 in rebates. The rebates apply to native trees. Register for the program and have your tree location and garden pre-approved to qualify for the rebate.
