Participants must register in advance in order to receive a free 3-gallon size tree, with a limit of one tree per residence. Only City of Denton residents and utility customers are eligible to receive a tree through this program.



All tree species offered are native or adapted to the North Texas climate and soil, and species options will be announced just prior to the beginning of registration in September.

Trees are Terrific!

Planting new trees enhances Denton’s urban canopy and helps our city thrive! Trees are vital for sustainable community growth, economic vitality, and public health. They also:

  • beautify neighborhoods and public spaces;
  • increase property values;
  • lower energy consumption of homes and businesses;
  • boost consumer spending; and
  • encourage outdoor physical activity.


Help your tree get a healthy start!
