Tree Giveaway at Tackett’s Mill
March 3, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm
Tree Giveaway! Several hundred Eastern Redbuds (Cercis canadensis) and Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) are looking for new homes to add a little beauty and so much more to your yard. Free; tickets required. Click to reserve.
Would you like two free seedlings for your yard? We’re hosting a drive-thru event to pick up 2 seedlings – one Redbud and one Dogwood per ticket holder. Sign up here and remember to bring your ticket either on your phone or as a printout. Seedlings are limited to the first 250 people that sign up.
Details about the March 5th morning pick-up at Tackett’s Mill will be emailed to all ticket holders.
Both the Eastern Redbud and the Flowering Dogwood are important native understory trees that are pretty to look at and great for wildlife. Both are small in stature – typically reaching 30 ft – and the flowers, fruits, and leaves of these trees provide year-round interest for you and good habitat and nutrition for our animal friends.
This is a drive-thru pickup event. As you drive up, please remain in your vehicle, and we will hand you your seedlings.
Hosted by: Prince William Conservation Alliance with Fairfax Water, Tackett’s Mill, Todos Supermarket, and Woodcrafters.
