DDOT’s Urban Forestry Administration (DDOT Trees) is the leader in annual tree planting in Washington, DC, installing thousands of street and park trees during the planting season from autumn to spring.
This interactive map identifies approximately 8,000 proposed street tree planting locations throughout the city for 2013-14. Clicking any proposed planting location will identify the work order number to reference, the species name, and the nearest street address. Sometimes trees are planted in a different location than proposed no this map due to unforeseen installation obstacles.

Adopt New Street Trees: Become a Canopy Keeper
Through the Canopy Keepers program, DDOT asks residents and businesses to water to new trees every week from spring to fall to supplement watering crews’ periodic watering. Receive a free tree watering ring for each tree adopted. The rings are yours to keep. Just be sure to clean and store them between each weekly use as well as over the winter.
Request a Tree Planting
DDOT is working to remove excess pavement, expand tree boxes, create new planting strips, and increase soil volume to provide as many street planting locations as possible. Call 311 (or go online at 311.dc.gov) to request a street tree planting. Requests submitted by June 15 will be included in that year’s planting season from October through March.
Plant Your Own Tree
If you wish to plant a street tree yourself, you must receive permission from a UFA arborist. We simply need to make sure the species is viable for the location and that the tree is entered into our GIS database so we track its health and maintain it to maximize its potential.
