City of Rockport | TreeCovery Events Scheduled for March 16

The City of Rockport and the Texas A&M Forest Service will be holding a free TreeCovery program on Friday, March 16. TreeCovery is a Texas A&M Forest Service managed fund to provide free trees and technical support to Texas communities affected by natural disasters.

The event kicks off with a Tree Workshop from 1:15 – 2:30 pm at the Rockport Service Center, located at 2751 SH 35 Bypass. Specialists will be on hand to discuss recommended tree species for Aransas County and the proper planting and care of trees.

Following the workshop, individuals are invited to help plants trees from 3 – 4 pm in three Rockport parks that experienced severe damage. Tools for planting will be provided, but volunteers should bring their own gloves.
