The City of Fremont offers a 50-50 Street Tree Program that provides financial help to property owners to care for their street trees. Street tree pruning and removal and replacement are eligible services.

If the street tree has caused sidewalk damage, property owners may be eligible for financial help for sidewalk repair and replacement through the 50-50 Sidewalk Program.


To be eligible for the 50-50 program and receive funds:

  • You must be a property owner (commercial or residential)
  • Select a contractor approved by the City. Visit our webpage for details.
  • Get and be pre-approved for a free tree permit
  • Complete tree care or sidewalk repairs according to industry best practices and in accordance with permit instructions


The property owner will apply for reimbursement online after completion of the work.

Tree assistance covers up to 50% of the cost of street tree pruning, or removal and replacement up to a maximum contribution of $750 per tree and up to two trees per property.

Sidewalk assistance covers up to 50% of the cost of repair to a maximum of $1,500 per property.

If fixing your sidewalk involves pruning or removing and replacing a tree, the property owner may also apply for the 50-50 Street Tree Program simultaneously.

For more information about trees, sidewalks, permits, news, events, volunteering, and the Urban Forest Management Plan, visit our webpage or call 510-494-4730.
