Urban Tree Sale

Pierce Conservation District’s Urban Tree Sale helps residents across Pierce County plant trees around their homes and along their streets through significantly discounted trees, planting resources, education, and ongoing support. Planting trees will help clean our air and water, make our streets more walkable, and our neighborhoods healthier. 

By supplying affordable trees along with the resources for long-term success in caring for the tree, Pierce Conservation Districts aims to increase canopy cover in Pierce County while supporting the communities that gain most from the many benefits of urban trees.

​If you have any questions, email Melissa.
