In partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, Orlando offers free trees to every city resident. People select a species that is native to Florida – such as bald cypresses, red maples, and persimmons.

Castro: “We deliver them a tree to their door in a box, that’s a sapling about three to four feet tall.”

Chris Castro is director of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and Resilience. He says trees can make neighborhoods more beautiful and even improve public safety.
