It’s The 2023 Free Tree Fridays in Arkansas, Here’s Where to Get Yours
It's springtime and that means it's time to start planting gardens but this is also the perfect time to plant trees in your yard too. So get ready for the Free Tree Fridays in Arkansas.
Trees not only give us wonderful shade in the hot summer months they are a beautiful addition to your landscape. The spring is a great time to plant trees especially if they are free.
In honor of Arkansas Arbor Day, celebrated annually on the 3rd Monday in March (March 20), and with National Arbor Day just around the corner on April 28, the Arkansas Department of Agriculture's Forestry Division is presenting their popular Free Tree Fridays all across the state of Arkansas.
They will be handing out bare-root seedling trees and different locations on Fridays going on now through Friday, April 28.
The species of trees that will be handed out will be based on the trees that grow best in each region. All the trees will be native Arkansas hardwoods. There is a limit of three seedlings per person. You can buy more seedlings from Baucum Nursery.
