Clinton, Iowa Tree Giveaway

November 4 @ 3:00 pm 6:00 pm

Thanks to the Wright Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation, an anonymous donor and countless individual donations, Trees Forever is hosting a free tree distribution to help grow and strengthen the local tree canopy!

Trees are free to anyone living in a derecho-affected county. The giveaway will take place on Friday, November 4, 2022 at Clinton Park parking lot in Clinton, Iowa from 3 to 6 pm. Located on the 300 block of South 3rd Street. Six species (Red Oak, Swamp White Oak, Hackberry, Bur Oak, Kentucky Coffeetree, and Shingle Oak) are available on a first-come, first served basis. There is a limit of two trees per vehicle.

Trees provide countless benefits to homeowners including lower heating and cooling costs, increased property values and aesthetic beauty. These trees are in 3-gallon containers and will be roughly 2-5 feet in size. Studies have shown that smaller trees quickly catch up to larger ones planted at the same time because of a shorter period of establishment and tend to be healthier overall.

We are so excited to provide trees to private residents! Please join us for this great event and plant new trees on your property! Event location highlighted in yellow in the image below.
