Special Tree Distribution

The City of Westmount has allocated $5 000 in its 2023 budget for the distribution of trees to Westmount residents only. Residents may obtain 1 (one) tree free of charge from the following selection below. Consult the photos and descriptions by clicking on the buttons below. Each tree is delivered in a small, 2 to 5 gallon pot that is easy to manoeuvre (large sapling sizes).

Please note that the number of trees is limited and will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis for planting on private property in Westmount. Your choice of tree will be delivered to your home by the end of September. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2023.  Residents who received a tree through the programme in the spring are also eligible to receive one in the fall.

Trees offered by the City under this program must be planted on private property within the City of Westmount, may not be resold, and are not intended for commercial use. The trees delivered are in good health. Please note, however, that if the tree you receive dies or deteriorates, the City will not be liable to replace it.


UPDATE: Tree distribution for autumn 2023 is now complete. The next distribution will take place in spring 2024.

Varieties available in fall 2023: 

American beech (Fagus grandifolia)


Dwarf “Albertiana” white spruce (Picea glauca ‘conica’)


Williams pear (Pyrus communis)
