Greenworks Autumn Tree Giveaway!

Autumn Tree Giveaway

Sunday, October 31st 10am-2pm

Sand Hill Nursery at the Buncombe County Sports Park

Registration required!

In an effort to combat the loss of our urban canopy, largely due to growth and development, Asheville GreenWorks, with support from Dominion Energy, Buncombe County Recreation Services, Pisgah Plants, Southeastern Native Plant Nursery, and Green River Botanicals, will be giving away 1,000 native trees to Buncombe County residents.

As we lose public space for trees, it’s important to support private land and homeowners in planting more trees and empowering them with the knowledge to care for them. This event is FREE to Buncombe County residents who have residential land to plant trees. Commercial usage is not permitted.

Registration opens Sunday, October 17th at noon, and is required for participants to select a pick up time and tree species (2 trees per Buncombe County residential address). More information can be foundĀ here.
