The City of Loveland is giving away free trees! This popular program launched in 2022. Approximately 100 trees were distributed. Due to its popularity, the program is growing!
In 2023, the Free Tree Giveaway will distribute 200 trees as an investment in the city's tree canopy. Residents can request up to two trees per household via an online reservation system. Orders will be accepted until all trees are reserved. Trees will be available for pick up in October, and residents are responsible for planting and caring for the trees on their own.
All 2023 trees have been claimed.
Does a free tree sound too good to be true?! The Tree & Environment Committee has rounded up the reasons why trees benefit the whole community:
Residents may select up to two trees per household. If two trees are requested, the two trees must be of different species, if possible, to increase biological diversity. It is important to request a tree that is the right match for your property.
You may select from the following:
These are suggested for sites WITHOUT overhead wires. These are considered to be "shade" trees. Trees could grow approximately 50-60 feet in height.
These are suggested for sites WITH overhead wires. Trees could grow approximately 25 feet in height.
Residents can request up to two trees (one of each type) per household. Orders are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Once all 200 trees are reserved for the giveaway, the order form will be closed.
Sign-Up is Closed
All trees reserved in less than 24 hours
Before digging, the city recommends that residents contact the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) to verify where gas, electric, and other utilities cross your property. Call (800) 362-2764 or 8-1-1 or visit e-dig to request a free visit.
