Tiny Trees Program

Rule number one, plant tiny trees

The Tiny Trees Program began in Des Moines in 2017 and since then has provided tens of thousands of free trees to Des Moines residents for planting on private property to help Des Moines grow its urban canopy and reap the many benefits that trees provide to our residents like lower heating and cooling costs, increased stormwater retention, increased property values and increased use of the outdoors.

Each Year, Des Moines residents are able to request up to five FREE individual trees from the Forestry Division. See below for a list of this year's available species through the Tiny Trees program.

With this free program, we are making it easier than ever for you to increase our urban tree canopy by planting trees on your property.
