City of Lansing tree-planting program


The City of Lansing is holding a free tree-planting program for residents and community groups within city limits that want to freshen up outdoor spaces on their property or throughout their neighborhood.

Interested parties will be asked to sign a pledge to ensure they will properly maintain the tree. After that, the Forestry Division will help them select the best size to fit their property. Small trees are less than 20 feet tall, medium trees are less than 40 feet tall and large trees are greater than 40 feet tall at maturity. To keep a good variety, the city will select the type of tree provided.

Applications are due by Feb. 28 and can be found at Completed applications can be emailed to or submitted in person at the Parks and Recreation Department’s main office, 200 N. Foster Ave., Lansing.
