February 14, 2024 – Lakewood residents showed their love for trees after the Lakewood Annual Tree Sale sold out quickly in 2023. The city will host its second sale beginning 8 a.m. March 1 through March 31, while supplies last. The Lakewood Tree Sale encourages residents to support an increased tree canopy and make progress toward city sustainability goals.

Deeply discounted trees will be offered at $25 per tree, up to 1-inch caliper, with a limit of three trees of different species per household. An increased supply including unique and diverse species of trees will be available this year.

“The tree sale is an exciting opportunity to offer our residents trees at discounted prices, reducing the financial barrier to buying trees, and supporting the city’s sustainability goals,” said Forestry Supervisor Luke Killoran.

Tree pickup will be Saturday, April 20 from 7 a.m. to noon at the City Greenhouse, 9556 W. Yale Ave. Learn more about the tree species, planting and care instructions, at Lakewood.org/TreeSale.

Residents can gain real-time access to the city's tree data and view tree canopies by city ward, ZIP code and more, using the TreePlotter™ tree canopy map to see the canopy in their neighborhoods.
