Grab your buckets and shovels, the Fall Tree Giveaway is almost here!
On Saturday, October 21, 250 trees will be given out in the Siloam Springs Public Library parking lot from 8 to 10 a.m. with a limit of two trees per household. No proof of residency required.
"Planting a tree is one of the great gifts a person can give to posterity,” said Travis Chaney, Parks and Recreation Manager. “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 stormwater runoff, shadier streets, habitat for wildlife, the list goes on."
