The City of Lewiston has the opportunity to receive donated shade trees to be planted on both city and private property within city limits. A portion of these trees will be planted on city owned property, but a number of them will be available for residents. We do not have an exact number of trees available and there is no guarantee everyone will be able to receive one.

If you wish to get on the tree list please provide a full name, street address, and a contact number to the email provided below (Only City of Lewiston Residents are Eligible for this Donation). The trees will be available spring of 2022. When the trees are ready to be picked, Lewiston Public Works will pick up the trees from the nursery and bring them to the public works shop. You will then be contacted to come and pick up your tree. Please be aware that you will need to transport the tree yourself. The trees can be heavy and a pickup truck or trailer will be needed for transport.

Trees that may be available are as follows:
Maples, Oaks, Birch, Kentucky Coffee Tree, Linden, Spruce, Walnut, Locust, Crabapple, Hickory, Black Cherry, and Hackberry.

*Please note there is no guarantee that all these species will be available or that everyone will be able to receive a tree. This program will be on a first come first serve basis. Please also provide an alternate tree species if the species you desire is unavailable. Tree size can also vary and again will depend on availability.


The City of Lewiston hopes this will become an annual program so we can continue to replace trees lost to damage and disease.

If you wish to get on the tree list please email Erik at:

Please Send Your Request by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday December 7th.

Thank You!

The City of Lewiston has learned that the cyber security incident that we reported to residents in late July was a ransomware attack.

The City contracted with legal and cyber security professionals, experienced in handling these types of incidents, to restore our systems and investigate the incident further.

Our investigations conclude that no sensitive information or private data involving residents was compromised as a result of the incident.

Unfortunately, other cities and government entities have been subjected to similar attacks in the recent past. While cybersecurity threats continue to impact all of us, we are taking ever-increasing measures to protect the information entrusted to us.

Please contact the office of the city administrator if you have questions or concerns about this announcement.
