In honor of National Arbor Day which is April 28, the Arkansas Department of Agriculture’s Forestry Division is hosting their popular Free Tree Fridays with some new locations including DeQueen and a big one in Texarkana.

The free tree bare root seedlings giveaway will continue the last two Fridays of this month at various locations across the state.


Kristine Kimbro, Urban and Community Forestry Coordinator for the Forestry Division stated in a press release;

“Adding trees to your yard or to a community forest is beneficial to all Arkansans, and Spring is an excellent time to plant trees. With these Arbor Day celebration giveaways, we hope to provide all Arkansans with access to the many benefits trees provide.”


The species of the bare root seedlings will vary at the locations. The wonderful thing about this program is the trees given away are native to the areas so they will flourish. the trees offered include;  American elm, river birch, bald cypress, persimmon, and/or red mulberry.

There is a limit of three seedlings per person. This is also a first come, first served event.
