Nevada, Iowa Tree Giveaway

October 18, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

Thanks to the Wright Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation, an anonymous donor and countless individual donations, Trees Forever and local partner Nevada Parks and Recreation are 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 October 18, 2022 in the parking lot west of the Aquatic Center, 1717 Fawcett Parkway, Nevada IA. from 4 to 7 pm. Five species (Red Oak, Swamp White Oak, Hackberry, Sycamore, and Kentucky Coffeetree are available on a first-come, first served basis. There is a limit of two trees per vehicle. For those living outside Nevada and arriving from Hwy 30, take the 19th street exit (McDonald’s, Caseys) north to Fawcett Parkway, and follow the signs.

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!
