Tampa recognizes the benefits of its trees and is committed to the conservation and enhancement of its environment. The Tree-mendous Tampa Program, also known as the Community Tree Program, is free and provides individuals and neighborhood associations with trees for planting on City land, greenways, and street rights of way. The program fosters the replenishment of Tampa's valuable and gracious tree canopy. Trees are a community resource that provides tangible benefits, in terms of visual and aesthetic attributes, environmental assets, health benefits, and economic value.
