Plant-a-Tree with the City of Burlingame

Each residential Property in Burlingame is entitled to one 15 gallon street tree at no charge, if the property does not already have one. There are a variety of different types of trees the property owner can choose to have planted by the city, but choices of trees are limited to the planter strip width and if your property is on a designated theme block. If space is available, additional trees may be requested at the property-owner’s expense. Landscaping, ground cover & low shrubs (up to three feet in height, not encroaching on the sidewalk or street) are allowed without a permit.

Parks Division staff plants trees in the City's right-of-way in January, April, and October. If you are interested in receiving a street tree or learning more, please contact us via e-mail at or phone call at 650.558.7330.
