TEXARKANA, Texas — The seventh annual local Arbor Day tree giveaway will take place March 6 at Spring Lake Park.

A thousand bare root seedlings will be available at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis.

A certified arborist chose tree varieties adaptable to Texarkana's climate. Available species may include cherry bark, bald cypress and sawtooth oak.

Because of COVID-19, those interested in obtaining trees will be asked to stay in their vehicles. Volunteers will bring the trees to them.

The city Planning and Community Development Department and the Texas A&M Forest Service partnered to organize the event.

(The seventh annual Arbor Day tree giveaway will begin at 9 a.m. March 6 near the Rotary Splash Pad in Spring Lake Park. For more information, contact Keith Beason at 903-798-3901 or [email protected])
