Time for NeighborWoods again! Boise Community Forestry is providing free shade trees to residents in Boise who have viable planting sites along the street in front of their home. Community Forestry has mailed invitation cards to preselected homes in an area that appears to have space for new trees.

NeighborWoods is a program created by Boise Parks & Recreation's Community Forestry Unit. The goal is to provide free trees to property owners to be planted on private property within 10 feet of the public right of way (the street or sidewalk). NeighborWoods is intended not only to provide trees and their benefits to individual property owners, but to the public streets as well, which in turn provide benefits to the City as a whole.
This program is meant for residents of Boise who do not have sufficient space in the public right of way to plant trees through one of Community Forestry's traditional tree planting programs (see Planting Programs). Here are a few facts:
