The City of Bentonville offers two tree giveaways a year for Bentonville residents, one in the spring and one in the fall. The goal of the giveaways are to increase the city’s overall tree canopy on residential property (commercial property is not eligible for this program), promote a healthier environment and improve the physical appearance and visual character of the built environment.
