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, food stamps, Medicaid, SNAP, or an equivalent program.

We have reached the number of homeowners we can serve this season with the funding we have been provided. If you need tree care assistance please sign up for our waitlist, and we will contact you when we have additional funding.  

If you have a tree care emergency 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.

The Remove and Replace program is funded in partnership with TreeFolks and the City of Austin. Thank you to our community partners Austin Tree Experts, Davey Tree, Heritage Tree Care, and other participating arborist firms.
