The City of St. Catharines is gearing up to give away more free trees this fall.

Free Tree Giveaway set for Oct. 21

The City of St. Catharines is gearing up to give away more free trees this fall.

Residents can receive a free tree to plant on their own property at the Free Tree Giveaway, Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until supplies run out.

“We heard loud and clear from residents that they value the benefits of having trees on their property,” said Ilyse Norton, development horticultural technician. “This is a way for us to make it a little easier for residents to plant new trees.”

More than 500 trees will be available on a first come, first served basis. Trees will be distributed in three-gallon pots and are about three-feet tall. They should easily fit inside a standard car. Residents can chose from four different varieties: Burr Oak; Red Oak; Eastern White Pine and Serviceberry. Forestry experts from the City will be available to answers questions about planting and maintaining the different types of trees. More information about the tree species is available at www.stcatharines.ca/FreeTrees .

To receive a free tree, residents must agree to plant and maintain the tree on private property located in St. Catharines, ideally in their own yards, and not on boulevards, along streets or in City parks. Proof of St. Catharines residency is required (such as a driver’s license) and each household is limited to one tree.

Residents who received a free tree in June are eligible for a tree at the Oct. 21 Free Tree Giveaway.
