Adopt a Street Tree Program


The Adopt-a-Street Tree program invites Sechelt residents to apply to have a free street tree planted on the road allowance in front of their property. Sechelt Parks Department will plant the tree and as 'adoptees', homeowners commit to watering their tree a minimum of 2 years and during extended dry periods thereafter.
Through innovative programs like this, the District of Sechelt is working to enhance our urban forest and to meet the goals set in our Urban Forest Plan.

Pick your top three choices from a list of 30 trees. Every effort will be made to plant one of the trees you have chosen; not all trees are available at all times.  Apply early as numbers are limited.  Parks staff will inspect the site in late summer to see if there is enough space to plant a tree on the road allowance.  Choices may be restricted due to height limitations.  Trees will be planted in the fall.
