Help Grow the City’s Tree Canopy: Plant A Tree

January 17, 2019

Have you been thinking about planting a tree in your yard? Here is an opportunity to purchase a shade tree at a reduced price for your private yard!

The City of Lakewood would like to help citizens purchase and have planted shade trees for their private yards to help us increase our urban tree canopy.

The City of Lakewood will be placing an order for shade trees for the upcoming Spring and Fall planting seasons.  Residents can purchase a shade tree AND have it professionally planted in their desired yard location at the same pricing that the city pays (plus applicable tax). You can choose any tree species from the extensive planting list of trees the city is planting this year.

Help us grow Lakewood’s Urban Tree Canopy!  Residents can contract directly with our 2019 tree planting contractor, The Greenleaf Group Inc., for the purchase and planting of a shade tree on their private property.

To select a tree and place an order, contact The Greenleaf Group Inc. at (330) 441-6326 or by email at to sign-up.  Mention that you are part of the 2019 City of Lakewood Shade Tree Purchase Program.
