Feb. 18th: Tyler’s Urban Forestry Division hosts Annual Seedling Giveaway

On Saturday, Feb. 18, the Tyler Trees Committee will be hosting their Annual Seedling Giveaway, where they will give away 2,200 tree seedlings.

The event begins at 9 a.m. and will take place at the CHRISTUS TMF South Broadway facility located at 8389 S. Broadway Ave.

The seedlings will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis. Unlike the drive-thru set up in the past couple of years, community members will be able to park at the facility and walk up to choose their seedlings.

Along with the seedlings, attendees will receive information on the species of their seedlings and proper planting instructions.

The variety of trees being given away include:

  • Baldcypress
  • Water oak
  • Overcup oak
  • Water hickory
  • Willow oak
  • Shumard oak
  • Pecan
  • Live oak
