Plant a Tree

As symbols of the park district’s long-term stability and growth, trees are also vitally important to the environment and our community’s physical and mental health. They provide clean air, wildlife habitat and beautiful forests for everyone to enjoy. For these reasons and more, Summit Metro Parks is celebrating its centennial by reforesting 100 acres in 2021!

Plant a Heritage Tree at your home, school or business

Planting trees outside of the parks is important, too! Heritage Trees are available in several special species found in the Metro Parks, and you can receive yours FREE at our first public pick-up event on April 24! View planting instructions and additional details about each tree species.

See April 24 event pick-up locations and tree species available

Check the Program & Events Calendar for tree distribution events or contact Biologist Chris Chaney to arrange a pickup for your school, business or other large group.
