Permission to Plant and Commitment to Care for a FREE Street Tree

I, , give my permission to have a tree planted in front of my house or property in the parkway between the sidewalk and the street.

I understand that the City of Los Angeles manages municipal street trees and will have to approve the tree species and its exact placement.

I understand that I am required to water and care for the tree during its initial growth period (estimated at 3 years from planting).

I understand that I will need to follow the guidelines of the "Newly Planted Tree" information sheet that I will be provided to me after the tree is planted.

Street address to be planted:
, Los Angeles, CA

Zip code:

Cell phone #:

Email address:

Number of trees: 123

Tree Species Choices: view choices on this spreadsheet and choose based on what is allowed for the size of your parkway. If you are planting more than one tree, pay attention to how many feet is required between trees (also on spreadsheet) to help you figure out how many trees you can realistically plant. List your selections in the box below, and give some backup choices in case your first choices are not available. Keep in mind, tree availability varies WIDELY so you may receive a tree other than the ones you list (if this is not okay with you, it is not recommended that you utilize this particular free tree program to plant your parkway). However, if there is a species of tree or a characteristic (such as high pollen) that you absolutely DON'T want, indicate that preference, and it will be accommodated. For all situations where your choice(s) are not available, an arborist will select the most similar alternative that is available, healthy, and well-suited to your parkway (they are VERY familiar with parkway tree selection and will pick you a great tree).
