Join our 3 Part- Arbor Day Celebration by picking up a FREE TREE at our first ever Residential Free Tree Giveaway on Saturday, April 29th starting at 9AM!

To pick up a free tree, you must agree to:

-plant the tree within City of Grand Rapids city limit;
-keep trees properly watered and maintained;
-and plant your tree in the ground of your yard or community garden and NOT along streets or in city park.

Citizen Foresters will be on deck helping you pick out the perfect tree for your yard. Our goal is to plant more residential trees within city limits. Residential plantings are necessary in helping to reach our City’s adopted canopy cover goal of 40%. Trees will be provided in containers easy to take home by car- and will be 4 to 6 feet tall. Quantities are limited- first come, first served!

This spring our generous tree giveaway sponsor is Bartlett Tree Experts-Grand Rapids/Lakeshore! Make sure to stop by Bartlett’s booth during the Free Tree Giveaway and learn about how they work with our community.

**Note: There is a one tree maximum for participants in the giveaway this year. You must be present to claim a tree.**
