[ARCHIVED] Free Tree Giveaway

Earth Day tree give away 2022

Register Now to get a Free Tree (or Two)! 

Are you a new homeowner in the City and want to plant a tree in your yard to celebrate this big milestone?  Or do you want more shade in your yard or over you house to reduce summer cooling costs?  Or maybe you are interested in contributing to growing the tree canopy within the City of College Park?  Or perhaps you recently had to remove a tree on your property due to insect damage or decline due to disease? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, or if you just want to plant a tree in your yard, the City of College Park and its Tree and Landscape Board is here to help!

The City is hosting a free Earth Day Tree Giveaway! City residents interested in participating in the tree giveaway must complete the registration form at www.collegeparkmd.gov/treegiveaway2022 by March 04, 2022.  Once registered, residents need to come on Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 8:00 am until noon at the City’s Department of Public Works (located at 9217 51st Avenue) to pick up their tree(s) (bring a printed copy of your submitted form). Each City residential property owner can receive up to two, 5-to-7-gallon size, containerized trees that are native tree species to College Park.  Included with the tree will be instructions on how to plant the tree and information about the tree species, as well as a gator bag with watering instructions. 

Gator bags can be installed on newly planted trees; the bags are designed to slowly provide water to newly planted trees to maintain moisture to the root ball during dry periods or when supplemental water is needed.  Residents who receive trees during the giveaway are encouraged to use the gator bags to assist in establishing the newly planted trees on their property. 

Have questions? Email the City Horticulturist at horticulturist@collegeparkmd.gov. Before planting your tree, please contact Miss Utility at 811 or via https://www.missutility.net/homeowner to request the underground utilities be marked to avoid future conflicts.  

The City’s Tree and Landscape Board will be at the event and looks forward to meeting the residents of College Park at the Earth Day Tree Giveaway event!.
