green your block

a free tree program

In partnership with the City of Grand Rapids, Friends of Grand Rapids Parks is on a mission to increase our city’s tree canopy to 40 percent (from its current 34 percent).

We maximize the number of trees planted each year through public volunteer projects, tree giveaways, and by inviting community members to help shape plans for their neighborhood tree canopy with the Green Your Block free tree program.

request your trees

We love partnering with neighbors to bring their vision to life and plant more trees throughout our city. 

If your neighborhood or group has a great location for free Green Your Block trees, we encourage you to submit a request!
