Street trees – those located in public space between the street and sidewalk – are planted and maintained by the District’s Urban Forestry Division (UFD), a department of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT). There are approximately 150,000 trees located along the streets in the District of Columbia. Casey Trees focuses its tree planting efforts to add trees on private and public property not serviced by UFD’s team of dedicated arborists.
Requests for a street tree to be inspected, planted, pruned or removed can be made by calling the service request center at 311, online, or using the DC 311 smartphone application (Android or iPhone). Hold on to your confirmation number to track progress on your request. Planting requests received by June 1 are cued up for fall or spring planting date.
