The Trees for Tucson program is now open for requests for low-cost trees for home delivery in the popular spring planting period. While trees can be planted throughout the year in the Tucson area, planting in the spring when trees are coming out of dormancy and the temperature is still cooler can ensure successful, healthy trees.


TEAM UP TO CLEAN UP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD - If beautifying your neighborhood is on your 2015 to do list, the City's Environmental Service (ES) department can help. ES will provide roll-off containers (dumpsters) for your use and will haul away the debris at no cost. To participate in this program, you and members of your association or group must be ES residential customers and an incorporated homeowners association, or an organized group of 10 or more residents.
