The City of Altamonte Springs conducts an annual tree giveaway on Arbor Day in April. A maximum of two trees per household are given to City of Altamonte Springs residents. Proof of residency (driver's license or water bill) is required to receive free trees.
Become a part of a growing number of residents helping to create a greener future for our beautiful City by participating in the Future Altamonte Springs Trees (F.A.S.T.) program. It is designed to efficiently replenish the city’s trees by planting trees in the right-of-ways along roads which front the properties of city residents. The Park Landscape Management and Operations Division purchases assorted tree varieties to plant throughout the City. You can request to have a tree planted on the right-of-way next to your property for free. In return, you must agree to be responsible for maintaining your tree.
To adopt a tree, contact the City’s arborist at (407) 571-8883 to meet with you to review the planting site and assist you in selecting the right tree for the location. Tree orders are accepted from October 1 through July 1. Planting typically begins in mid-October.
