Tree Program

The Everett Public Works Department Tree Program is a tree-planting partnership program for trees planted in parking strips and City right-of way. It is a partnership between residential and commercial property owners and the City of Everett. Since the implementation of this program, more than 4,675 street trees have been planted in more than 20 neighborhoods throughout Everett.

Everett has been recognized as a "Tree City USA" since 1993. Learn more at Arbor Day Foundation's Tree City USA webpage.

  5. The owner waters and maintains the tree.
