It's almost that time again, the City of Texarkana, TX has teamed up with the Texas A&M Forestry Service for the 7th Annual Arbor Day tree giveaway. What better way to celebrate Arbor Day than by getting a free tree? It will all take place on Saturday, March 6th.  The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. at Spring Lake Park across from the Rotary Splash Pad and will extend until all trees are given away.

 Just a heads up these trees go fast so get there early!

According to a press release, members of the City of Texarkana, Texas Planning and Community Development Department and the Texas A&M Forest Service will be on-hand to help give away 1,000 bare root seedlings. The public is invited to participate in the tree giveaway, however, due to COVID-19 those interested in obtaining trees will be asked to stay in their vehicle and a volunteer will bring the trees to you.

The tree species have been carefully researched by a certified arborist and varieties were selected that are adaptable to Texarkana's climate. Available species may include cherry bark, bald cypress, and sawtooth oak.
