In observance of Memorial Day, City Hall and all city offices will be closed on Monday, May 28, 2018.
Residential trash pickup on Monday will occur as usual.

Street Trees


Once crews are cleared from damage/recovery work, they will begin installations. Requests/applications on file will receive a confirmation request via email once crews are ready to proceed. Please make sure you confirm your request by responding to the email ASAP.

All efforts will be made to expedite requests currently on file. However, as each application requires an onsite visit, this process does take time. Thank you for your patience.


In an effort to preserve our street tree canopy, the City of Orlando provides trees to homeowners.

  • No cost to the homeowner
  • Two trees in your front right-of-way
  • Four trees on a corner lot

Residents within City limits are eligible to receive free private trees and/or street trees. 

Do you live in the City limits? Check our Orlando Information Locator using your address (although your mailing address may say “Orlando, FL”, certain areas of the region are under Orange County jurisdiction).

Choose the type of tree you want. Take a look at the various species we have to offer to find the right one for you. View available trees here.


Use our online form to place your order.Please note, the City determines the most appropriate location for the tree. See additional resources available to help you make a decision.


Learn how to care for your tree once it arrives on your yard. Find out how to prep the soil, water, fertilize and mulch.


Tree Types

Choose between a canopy or an understory tree

  • Canopy trees can be planted if the right-of-way is at least 6′ wide, these trees will grow taller.
  • Understory trees are best if you have overhead power lines or a narrow parkway, as they grow shorter than canopy trees.
