Free trees will be available to the public as part of Texarkana, Texas' fourth annual celebration of Arbor Day.
The city, the Texas A&M Forest Service and Arkansas Forestry Commission will give away more than 1,100 bare-root seedlings and small potted trees beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 3, at Spring Lake Park.
The trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tree species to be given away have been carefully researched by a certified arborist, and varieties were selected that are adaptable to Texarkana's climate, according to a city news release.
Available species may include bur oak, cherrybark oak, sawtooth oak, white oak, bald cypress, eastern redbud and silky dogwood.
