Remove and Replace

Do you need assistance with the removal of a dead or dying tree?

Austin area homeowners with a dead or dying tree that poses a risk to their home or property may qualify for free tree removal under TreeFolks’ Remove and Replace program.

Our program contracts with insured, qualified tree care companies to safely remove the dangerous tree. We then offer a young, native tree to plant in its place along with a free consultation.

To qualify for the program, an individual must (a) own the property where they are requesting service and (b) qualify for a federal low-income program including WIC, Medicaid, SNAP LoneStar, social security or an equivalent program and (c) the tree must present an immediate hazard to the house or structures. 

If you have a tree care emergency and do not qualify for our program we suggest contacting an insured, ISA-certified arborist. 

You can contact us at or (512) 443 5323 for a list of recommended tree care professionals.

Thank you to the arborists who donate their services for this program! 




The Remove and Replace program is funded in partnership with TreeFolks and the City of Austin.
