Let's plant a tree - for free!
In order to make residents aware of the many benefits of planting trees, Palm Beach County, FL has set up an innovative program to convince home owners to plant more (native) trees in their landscape.
The benefits of planting trees and replenishing our natural canopy's are proven to be beneficial in many ways: from providing shade and eliminating heat spots, improving air quality and safe harbors for our native fauna.
Under the program, Palm Beach residents can sign up to receive two, three gallon native plants and receive information on how, when and what to plant
There is an annual limit of one plant voucher, redeemable at participating nurseries for two, three-gallon native plants per Palm Beach County household, while funding lasts.
