Looking to Beautify Your Block?  Plant a tree with the help of the DPW

For the cost of $200, the Department of Public Works will plant a tree in an existing tree pit in front of your property, or create a new tree pit where regulations allow.


The average cost of purchasing and planting a tree ranges from $750-$1200.  By partnering with the Department of Public Works, you can reduce your tree planting costs while increasing the number of street trees throughout Jersey City.


The benefits offered by trees are myriad and quantifiable; they reduce energy costs for property owners, increase property values, contribute to a cleaner environment, can reduce or prevent flooding and have actually been found to reduce stress levels.

One word of advice from one of our board members: tree pits in front of old historic buildings may lead to water seeping thru to the basement of the building; speak with a professional before creating a new pit.
