The Providence Neighborhood Planting Program has pushed its deadline to request free street trees for the fall planting season back two weeks to June 15. Any group of 5 or more neighbors may apply for up to 20 trees for planting between the sidewalk and the street. PNPP delivers the trees. The applying neighbors help plant them and agree to water and care for the trees.

Trees help cool your home and the entire street and add to the market value of a house. They also remove planet-warming carbon from the air and reduce storm water pollution of Narragansett Bay in heavy rains.

For an application, visit the Providence Neighborhood Planting Program web site: or e-mail Nina Ridhibhinyo at

Note that, unlike the original deadline, your application must be at PNPP by the 15th. So if you are mailing your application, allow time for delivery. Summit folks can just walk over to the PNPP office at 8 Third St and drop it off.
