Adopt A Tree Program

To encourage planting in the City of Albany, the City will underwrite one half of the cost of purchasing and planting a tree. The trees are to be planted in the City right-of-way in front of or on the side of your home.

Trees are available to be planted for the spring and the fall planting, while supplies last. To learn more call the Department of General Services at 518-427-7480 or visit
