The person you call to order your tree can also help you figure out which kind of tree to order, and will help arrange the necessary permitting and hole digging. Costs of the trees vary, depending on whether Friends of Trees has received a grant to subsidize fees in your neighborhood. All homeowners will pay no more than $75 per tree, however, which includes both planting and follow-up monitoring.
