Tree Pittsburgh, Partners To Give Away 1,000 Free Trees In Allegheny County Oct. 13, Nov. 3

Tree Pittsburgh, in partnership with Duquesne Light, the Arbor Day Foundation, TruGreen and FedEx, will be giving away 1,000 trees to residents of Allegheny County at two events--

-- November 3: North Park Ice Rink, 1200 Pearce Mill Road, Wexford from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Click Here to register.
500 trees will be distributed at each event in 2 or 3 gallon containers and will range from 2 to 7 feet all.  The trees will be able to fit in a car or truck.
Species include river birch, sycamore, cherry dogwood, black gum, tulip poplar and others.  You cannot guarantee the species you receive. 1 tree per person (no more than 2 per household please).
Registration is strongly encouraged to ensure you receive a tree, but we generally accept walk-ins while supplies last.
The free tree giveaway is part of the Community Tree Recovery Campaign by Tree Pittsburgh and its partners to help re-establish the tree canopy lost in Allegheny County.
