Community Information | Free Tree Giveaway November 9, 2018


The Arbor Day Foundation and Verizon Wireless will host a Tree Giveaway on  Friday, November 9, 2018  from 2-6 p.m. at the Bay Education Center on Navigation Circle at the Rockport Festival grounds. A thousand trees will be distributed, with one tree available per person. The trees are appropriate for our area and will be in 3-5 gallon buckets of soil and will be less than 6' tall. This giveaway is part of the Arbor Day Foundation's goal to place five million trees on public and private lands in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, restoring lost tree canopies following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. According to the Foundation, "The Community Tree Recovery program was created in 2005 out of the great need for trees in the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina." Distributions in Texas will continue over the next four years.
