Greening the Gateway Cities

If you live or work in McKnight-Hill area, you can get free trees!

Greening the Gateway Cities Springfield (GGC Springfield or GGCP) was created to increase tree coverage in urban areas in Massachusetts. Homeowners, business owners, and renters in the McKnight-Hill neighborhoods can get free trees on their property to shade your parking lot, porch, or building.

Residents can request a visit with a forester for trees by dialing 3-1-1 if your in the city or 413-736-3111 if outside the city. You can also sign up online by filling out this brief contact form. We do site visits year-round so it's always a good time to request a tree!

Check out some of the trees we offer here!
