[ARCHIVED] Tree Giveaway

A Witch Hazel Tree is shown standing tall against the blue sky.

Mark your calendars, the annual Tree Giveaway is happening on Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 8-10 a.m. in the parking lot across from the Siloam Springs Public Library. 

"Planting a tree is one of the great gifts a person can give to posterity," Parks and Recreation Manager Travis Chaney said. "The Walton Family Foundation has been sponsoring this giveaway in cities across the region for many years now, and it is a fantastic initiative that aims to improve our urban tree canopy. It's hard to overstate the benefits of healthy urban forests: cleaner air, less storm water runoff, shadier streets, habitat for wildlife, and the list goes on."

Here are the species that will be available. 

Shellbark Hickory
Witch Hazel
Tulip Poplar Tree
Chickasaw Plum
Bur Oak

A total of 250 trees will be given away. The trees will be available on a first come, first served basis and no more than two trees per household will be given. Trees are in 3-gallon to 7-gallon containers and are approximately 5-foot to 8-foot tall. It is encouraged for residents to have a vehicle large enough to carry the trees.
