Get a tree planted in front of your home!

The Urban Resources Initiative (URI) is pleased to announce the launching of their GreenSkills Program. This is an internship program that brings together college and high school interns to plant street trees.
Trees for Your Tree-Line
Do you want a tree for the tree-line in front of your home? The GreenSkills interns will plant the tree for you. Your only obligation is stewardship. Keep the tree watered and it will add beauty and shade to your home.
The GreenSkills interns will fulfill the tree requests that residents have made to the New Haven Department of Parks, Recreation and Trees or to the URI office.
URI staff will contact the resident prior to the planting to make a site assessment, discuss species selection, and explain the necessary follow-up maintenance.
Reserve your tree now!
This is a free service to you. Your only obligation is to water and take care of the tree.
Interested residents can contact the Parks Department or contact URI at 432-6570 or e-mail
