Get Free Trees! It’s The 9th Annual Arbor Day Tree Giveaway in Texarkana
You know spring is right around the corner when it's time for Texarkana's Annual Arbor Day Tree Giveaway. The City of Texarkana, Texas, Keep Texarkana Beautiful, A&M Forestry and Bowie County Master Gardeners have teamed up for the annual event.
This year it will be a drive-thru event at Spring Lake Park in Texarkana, Texas on Saturday, March 4.
Three Types of Free Tree Root Seedlings Will be Handed Out
There will be 900 bare root seedings that will be given away. The wonderful thing about this program is that the trees that will be handed out grow great here in the Texarkana area.
According to the press release;
A certified arborist was asked to select a variety of trees to ensure they are adaptable to Texarkana’s climate. The species selected to be given out include Sawtooth Oak, Bald Cypress, and Allegany Chinkapin.
What Time Does The Arbor Day Tree Giveaway Start in Texarkana?
This popular event will start at 9 AM at Spring Lake Park right across from the Rotary Splash Pad. The event will end at 10:30 AM or when all the seedlings have been given out. I've been to this event before and it goes fast! A word of advice is to be sure to get there early.
There will be members from Keep Texarkana Beautiful, Texarkana Texas City staff, Partnership for the Pathways, and Texas Forestry Services there to hand out all the 900 bare root seedlings.
Where do I Get In Line at Spring Lake Park For The Tree Giveaway?
As I said this event is super popular so get in line early. When you get there you are asked to please stay in your vehicle. The volunteers will bring the young tree seedlings to you. Be sure to come into Spring Lake Park through the Mall Drive Entrance which is where the line will start forming.
