Adopt A Tree
The City of Bridgeport is working to expand Bridgeport's tree canopy. The Department of Public Facilities, Parks and Recreation Department would like to provide trees for your street.
In 2013, the City of Bridgeport engaged the Spatial Analysis Laboratory (SAL) at the University of Vermont’s Rubenstein School of the Environment and Natural Resources to carry out an assessment of the existing and potential tree canopy in Bridgeport. Click here to read the report.
Trees provide beauty and summer cooling, reduce air pollution, decrease stormwater runoff and add to the overall character of a neighborhood.
Residents, we'd love your participation in this initiative in the effort to maintain and enhance the City’s tree population. Adopt-A-Tree Applications are available online and at the Bridgeport Parks and Recreation Office, 7 Quarry Road, Trumbull, CT 06611. This program has been made possible by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Community Development Block Grant Program, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the City of Bridgeport.
Street Tree Planting requires planning, preparation and stewardship. The commitment to adopt a tree as part of this agreement is a significant undertaking
