46th Annual Arbor Day Tree Giveaway

EVENT DETAILS

Twelve varieties of native tree seedlings will be given away for residents to plant at home or in a local green space. No registration needed for this FREE event. This year, 12 varieties of native seedlings are available including both canopy trees and understory trees. Canopy trees, which comprise the upper layer of the forest, typically reach heights of 40 to 90 feet at full maturity. The following varieties are available this year: American Sycamore, Chinkapin Oak, Loblolly Pine, Lacey Oak, Texas Pistache and Green Ash. Understory trees range in height from 8 to 40 feet at maturity and are generally more shade-tolerant. These smaller varieties include Texas Redbud, Possumhaw Holly, Roughleaf Dogwood, Texas Persimmon, Spicebush, and Witch Hazel. Each of these native varieties benefit local wildlife. Flowering trees and shrubs provide nectar for bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Berry-producing varieties offer small mammals and birds a source of food. All are critical hosts for beneficial insects.
