Tree Planting Program

City of Ottawa Cost-Sharing Tree Planting Program

The City of Ottawa announces that its cost-sharing tree planting program remains open for residential and commercial participants. 

Residents and commercial property owners within the City of Ottawa are eligible to participate in the program, which offers the opportunity to have a two-inch tree planted in the parkway (berm) in front of their property.  Participants will pay a flat rate of $100 per tree.  Each participant may apply for multiple trees per lot, subject to availability and space.

Participation in this program will be on a first-come, first-served basis until all trees are allocated.
