Plant TINY TREES this spring so you can:  increase property values, save on heating and cooling bills, provide oxygen, and create habitat for wildlife. 

City of Des Moines is making it easier than ever for you to increase our urban tree canopy by planting trees on your property. Up to 5 FREE individual trees will be made available to city residents, just by clicking an order button above.  

Education materials, such as tree planting, tree watering and new tree care, are available on the plant/care button above and also on pick-up day,  April 27th.
