You can foster tree in Edmond


EDMOND – Registrati­on for the Edmond Urban Forestry department’s Foster-ATree program is now open.

Any resident living within Edmond City limits on a publicly maintained street can sign up to have a tree planted in the street right-of-way adjacent to their property.

Trees are limited to one per residence, but neighborho­od associatio­ns may receive up to five. People who have received a tree through the program in the past must have completed their two-year Foster-A-Tree agreement before signing up for another tree. Registrati­on is available online at, and will remain open for Edmond residents until 60 trees have been claimed. Available species include: Loblolly pine, swamp white oak, autumn blaze maple, yellowwood, downy serviceber­ry and fringe tree. Each tree will be planted by the Urban Forestry Department at no cost to the resident.
