DMV garden centers and nurseries mapped

We love to talk about our Tree Rebate program. You know, that one where you can get up to $100 back per tree if you purchase and plant one on private property in D.C.

You may love the program and want to plant a tree but you just may not know where to buy a tree. Problem solved.

For your shopping convenience, our Technical Services and Research Team has mapped out all the tree nurseries and garden center within roughly 25 miles of D.C. so you can see at a glance where the closest ones are to you.

Things to note:

  • Call before you go. Our map isn’t attesting to the availability, quality or quantity of trees at any of these locations. Before you venture out to one of the featured garden centers, give them a call to see if they carry what you want.
  • Inspect before buying. Not all tree sold commercially are equal so take your time selecting the right one and visit several nurseries if necessary. Bring along our tree selection tips so you know what above and below-ground qualities to look for.
  • Ask questions. Nursery staff are there to help you. Describe what you are looking for and get their recommendations.

And remember, rebate requests must be accompanied by an itemized purchase receipt — so be sure to get one before leaving the store. We hate turning down requests.

The Tree Rebate program is made possible with funding from the District Department of the Environment.
