Now Accepting Requests for the Free Tree Canopy Revitalization Program

The City of Cleveland is now accepting requests for Tree Canopy Revitalization Program. As part of this program, property owners can request a free tree installation during the spring and fall planting seasons by completing an online request form. Each location will be surveyed in person by a Field Operations Forester to ensure that the site is suitable. Approved sites are then added to a list for a tree to be planted during the next available planting season. All requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis. The Tree Canopy Revitalization Program was created in support of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s tree planting initiative, in which he pledged up to $1 million a year to replenish the city’s tree canopy.

In summer 2019, the city of Cleveland’s Office of Community Development and the Equitable Community Development Working Group engaged with Reinvestment Fund, PFM, Greater Ohio Policy Center, Neighborhood Connections and Leverage Point Development, to study the City’s residential tax abatement program. The study was commissioned to better understand the historic usage of the program, the value it generated for the City, and to identify potential adjustments to the program that would help the City advance an Equitable Community Development Strategy as part of Mayor Jackson’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative.

This new program helps seniors aged 60 years and older and adults with disabilities address one home maintenance or home repair need. The program will also assist with referrals to other home repair programs. There are income restrictions and guidelines for the program.
