Celebrate Arbor Day with Sacred Tree

Arbor Day is a holiday to plant and care for trees. Join us to celebrate the importance of trees in our environment. We’ll be having fun while learning more about trees. Families will have an opportunity to select a free tree to take home to plant in their yards. Tree varieties provided by Sacred Tree will include magnolias, maples, white oaks, pin oaks, Chinquapin dwarf oaks, tupelos, and more. Natalie Wilson and Kelly Gibbs from Sacred Tree will help you pick the best tree for your site and answer any questions about planting trees. Limit of 1 tree per family. Upon registration, you will receive by email a link to a Google form, “Free Trees Program E-Application,” to complete for Sacred Tree. Sacred Tree’s mission is to connect people to trees both in the home and in education.
