“Free trees for Delaware residents” not available

No Free Trees

In 2018, DNREC’s Division of Watershed Stewardship Nonpoint Source Program  partnered with the Delaware Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program as part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Community Canopy Project to expand tree canopies in cities and towns across the country.

This program is no longer available and there is no current source of funding to distribute free trees.

Trees planted in strategic locations around a house can provide homeowners with numerous benefits,   including: cleaner air and water, improved property values, less storm water runoff and flooding, and lower energy bills through reduced heating and cooling costs.
