On March 7, we will be partnering with the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority/MoPac Improvement Project to hand out 500 free 1-gallon trees at a Tree Adoption event. The adoption will open at 9 am and will go until 1pm or until all the trees are distributed. It will be first come, first served, two trees per household. The trees selected are native trees that do well in our area and will include Baldcypress, Mexican white oak, Cedar Elm, Mexican Buckeye, Deciduous holly (Possumhaw), Texas Redbud, and Mexican Plum.
We are seeking volunteers to help distribute the trees and answer questions. Volunteers can sign up at www.treefolks.org/volunteer. Please feel free to disseminate this information to your constituents. There are no requirements to qualify for the free trees.
Thanks for your help!
