If you registered for the City’s first tree giveaway, please plan to pick up their trees this Saturday, April 23, from 8:00 a.m. – Noon at the Department of Public Works (9217 51st Avenue).
Please bring a printed copy of your submitted form. The trees are 5-to-7-gallon size, and should fit in small vehicles. Bring a tarp or plastic to protect the car’s interior and contain soil in the pot when it is laid down for transport. Included with the tree are instructions on how to plant the tree and watering instructions for the watering ring.
Residents who receive trees during the giveaway are encouraged to use the water rings to establish the newly planted trees on their property.
Have questions? Email the City Horticulturist at horticulturist@collegeparkmd.gov. Before planting your tree, please contact Miss Utility at 811 or via https://www.missutility.net/homeowner to request the underground utilities be marked to avoid future conflicts.
The City’s Tree and Landscape Board will be at the event and looks forward to meeting the residents of College Park at the Earth Day Tree Giveaway event!
