Plant a Tree

Plant a Tree

Parkway trees provide shade, help clean the air, and beautify the neighborhood. Tree-lined streets make the neighborhood a desirable place to live and add to our home values.  If you would like to have a tree planted in your parkway, the City of Hawthorne will plant one for you – FREE! 



1) The request for a parkway tree must be made by the property owner who must agree to water it.

2) Tree must be selected from list of city approved trees and be similar to other trees on the street.


To request a parkway tree or for more information, contact the city's arborist (Bill Gerten) at (310) 349 - 1664 or  A phone call is preferred.
