The City of New Haven--in partnership with the Urban Resources Initiative--is offering FREE TREES to New Haven residents this spring. This is a great opportunity for residents to give a gift to future generations and be part of something larger than themselves.
Trees beautify the city, improve the air, reduce flooding, help wildlife, and increase property values. Adopting a tree also supports the local workforce. The program provides training and job experience to members of the New Haven community who are underemployed (high school students and formerly incarcerated adults).
To make a request, New Haven residents (renters or owners) can call URI at 203-432-6189, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out our online form (http://uri.yale.edu/get-involved/request-free-tree). Each tree and location is reviewed by a certified arborist before planting.
