2024 Annual Tree Frederick Store Launches

In its fifth year, the Tree Frederick program aims to assist City homeowners in planting more trees. The effort will ultimately increase tree canopy in the City, help improve air and water quality, and might even help homeowners reduce energy costs.

According to the 2021 Tree Canopy Assessment, the City’s canopy is less than 20 percent, short of the 40 percent goal. “To meet that goal, we’ll need everyone’s help,” said City Sustainability Manager Jenny Willoughby. Tree Frederick helps homeowners purchase containerized trees through a 50-50 cost share. Most of the trees will cost homeowners about $15 to $25, depending on species and size available, with the City picking up the remainder of the cost.

“We selected this year’s species list with small and large yards in mind. All the species are native and range from small trees like serviceberry to large trees like swamp white oak,” said Willoughby. If you’re not sure which tree is right for your space, you may reach out to Jenny Willoughby with questions at

The Tree Frederick program is open only to City residents. The online store will be available on February 1 and sales will go through March 15, or earlier if funds run out. Residents will need to pick up their trees on April 13 at Max Kehne Park, 11am to 2pm.
