Street/Shade Tree Donations

Trees Donated by Citizens to be Picked up and Planted by DPW

The Milton DPW has a program where citizens can purchase a tree from a local nursery and the DPW will pick up the pre-paid tree and plant it in front of your home. Trees must be selected only from the attached list prepared by the Milton Shade Tree Advisory Committee. Trees under this program are only planted during the months of September, October, November, and December so long as weather permits.

If you wish to donate a tree, please contact the DPW before making a tree purchase on your own. Not all locations are suitable as a site for tree planting. Several factors are used in determining if your site is suitable or not. Also some tree species may be more suitable than others for your location. To start the evaluation and donation process call the DPW at 617-898-4970.

Click on this link to see which trees can only be selected. When the link opens you can click on the tree species and an image of what that tree species looks like will appear.
