Bentonville, AR… The City of Bentonville is hosting its spring tree giveaway. The goal of the giveaway is to increase the city’s overall tree canopy, promote a healthier environment and improve the physical appearance and visual character of the built environment.
Approximately 500 trees are available to Bentonville residents. Only those residents that live inside the city limits qualify for the tree giveaway. Pre-registration will be available, enabling participants to receive advance Bentonville residency verification and tree reservation.
For Bentonville residents that do not pre-register, a limited number of trees will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Proof of Bentonville residency is required – City of Bentonville utility bill and ID.
The giveaway is made possible by the City’s Tree & Landscape Advisory Committee, the Bentonville Parks Conservancy, Steuart Walton, and the Peel Compton Foundation.
Available Tree Species Include (subject to change): 5 Gallon Shortleaf Pine
