Plant a tree for Free!

South Salt Lake Community Connection is offering free trees and volunteers ready to plant a tree in your front yard or park strip.

Trees and nature are proven to reduce stress, improve mental and physical health and of course make homes and neighborhoods more livable. A single, heathy mature tree adds an average 10% to a home's value!

It is FREE, no strings attached. 

Simple contact us to sign up or suggest a place that might benefit from a tree.
