Is there space for a tree in the greenbelt in front of your house or business? Branch out Burlington’s Tree Keeper Program is bringing trees to people who agree to take care of them.
Every year, volunteers from Branch Out Burlington! transplant trees from the Burlington Community Tree Nursery to sites along the streets of Burlington. The trees need some tender loving care to become established in their new locations. The first year is especially critical. Learn more . . .

"People who live in Burlington’s neighborhoods are often proud of the natural beauty -- especially the trees. Broad leafy trees, quietly celebrating the cycle of the seasons from bud to green to orange and crimson to dust, and returning to bud once again. And tall evergreen trees exist, stalwart and vibrant with life, even throughout the depths of winter’s snows. If community is the heart of a city, then trees must surely be its lungs."
