Neighborhood Tree Grant

The Liberty City Council, in cooperation with the Liberty Tree Board have established a Neighborhood Tree Grant Program that encourages neighborhoods to plant trees to increase the community forest canopy, which will ensure the continued health, social, and environmental benefits trees provide to our community.

  • The purpose of the Neighborhood Tree Grant Program is to assist Liberty neighborhoods with a coordinated and planned program of tree planting on public and private Homeowners Association property to further enhance the community forest.
  • The amount of the grants awarded could range from $500 to $10,000, depending on the scope of the project, the number of grant applications received, and the funding available.
  • Eligible organizations are not required to be incorporated, but must have an elected board of officers, by-laws, and a membership roll, as well as be registered with the City of Liberty. To register your organization, just provide a copy of the organization’s by-laws and a list of officers. There is no fee to register. The City of Liberty staff is available to assist your neighborhood with forming an organization, if needed.
