The 2019 Community Tree Giveaway is Saturday, Oct. 19.  Registration is NOW CLOSED. Registration filled up in record time – in just 5 hours. If you missed it, be sure to sign up for our waiting list.

Occasionally, Tree Giveaway participants will withdraw their registration or relinquish their tree. Because we want to be sure all our trees find a home, KDB is offering a waiting list option for those interested in being notified should any trees become available. As with the Giveaway registration itself, the waiting list will be handled on a first come, first served basis.

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. Please read our Frequently Asked Questions.

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!
