Carlisle Parks and Rec offer a free tree program to borough residents. If you own your home, you can get up to 2 free trees in front of your home. If you rent, you just need your landlord to submit the application. They will coordinate with a nursery to get the tree and will have someone come and cut a space in the sidewalk for it if you don’t have a tree well/lawn in front of your home. The application says it is due September 1st for fall and March 1st for spring but it is a rolling application so it will always be accepted but planting may be delayed. They will plant in the spring and then again in the fall depending on when applications are received.
