We offer expertise, training, tools, and advice so that we may empower our community to plant, protect, and learn about trees.

Sacramento Shade Trees

The Sacramento Shade Program provides free shade trees for homes in Sacramento County. A variety of trees are available through our partnership with Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).

To see a list of trees available at NO CHARGE to SMUD customers, please use the Shady Eighty tree guide and select “Yes” next to the SMUD logo under the “Tree Available for free through SMUD Shade tree program”. 


All Sacramento Shade Program trees on our list are deciduous, meaning they lose their leaves in the fall, which helps keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. 

You can also review our planting guidelines to learn more about selecting the right tree for your space. 

**Please note that certain trees may not be available at all times.  

Here are a few of the beautiful trees we offer.
