Newport Bare Root Tree Program

Commit to caring for a tree, and the City of Newport’s Forestry Division will provide one at wholesale cost and plant it for you! Planting begins in March. Quantities are limited.

Dear Newport Resident,
For the sponsorship cost of $50 for a bare root tree, the city will provide and plant a tree that can be setback up to 20′ from the road onto private property.
Please forward this application to anyone who might be interested in sponsoring a tree and support our efforts to sustain our community forest.
