Venues Parks & Arts is excited to share in the mission to make it simpler to give back to our environment. We are dedicated to making it easier on individuals to give back to the environment, create a healthier city, protect the existing ecology and continue to grow our urban tree canopy – all by planting a single tree!
We are thrilled to offer our residents the opportunity to have a FREE tree planted on your tree lawn through this new initiative! Our goal is to plant 140 trees within the city of South Bend in 2021. So how will it work? Read below to find out more.
I’m interested! How do I sign up? Fill out the below online application and our Forester will be in contact with you within 2 business days.
Please note: trees are on a first-come, first-served basis. Tree lawns must also be at least 5′ to be eligible. The City will not be able to remove a tree on your tree lawn in order to plant a new one.
Due to the overwhelming amount of applications received, we are no longer taking applications at this time.
The VPA Forestry Teams’ mission is to continue to promote Ecological Stewardship as we create equitable experiences for our residents and guests every year. Additional questions about the program? Please contact our Forester at 574-299-4766.
