Tree Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Shade Tree Commission giving away seedlings Friday, April 29 in Market Square
Tree Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Shade Tree Commission will partner to host a tree seedling giveaway for Arbor Day Friday, April 29 in Market Square. Tree Pittsburgh will be in Market Square at 10 a.m. and the seedling giveaway will begin at 11:30. The giveaway will end at 2 p.m.or whenever the seedlings run out – whichever comes first. Distribution of trees is on a first-come, first-served basis.
All seedlings given away this year were grown locally at Tree Pittsburgh’s Heritage Nursery, with seeds from Pittsburgh trees. Seedlings included in the giveaway are tulip poplar, white oak, yellow buckeye, umbrella magnolia and pawpaw. All seedlings planted will go towards Tree Pittsburgh’s goal of planting 10,000 trees in 2016, in honor of their tenth anniversary.
