Street Tree Planting 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 receive an order form, call the Department of General Services at 434-2489 or click on the link below.
