Urban Tree Sale

Our Urban Tree Sale program aims to help residents across Pierce County receive significantly discounted trees and provides the resources necessary to properly plant them around their homes.

Planting these trees helps to clean our air and water, make our streets more walkable, and our neighborhoods and watersheds healthier.

By supplying affordable trees along with the education and support needed for their long-term success, Pierce Conservation District aims to increase canopy cover throughout Pierce County while supporting the communities that have much to gain from the many benefits of urban trees.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email
Melissa, our Water Quality Program Director.
