Bring Home a Tree


Celebration of Trees is Fayetteville's annual tree giveaway event where city residents select and take a tree to plant at home.

Properly located trees around the home can add property value, reduce residents' utility bills, and protect skin from the sun's UV rays.

Many native trees and shrubs that residents have planted through the program also provide excellent benefits for birds and pollinators.

Purpose


Created to bring citizens a hands-on opportunity in growing the urban forest, the City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department and the Urban Forestry Advisory Board host Celebration of Trees in October. Participants should bring proof of a Fayetteville residential address to take home a tree.

The City provides information sheets on characteristics of each species, planting suggestions, and management tips. Celebration of Trees is a one day event, but growing a tree is a sustained endeavor. Tree giveaway participants are encouraged to plant and manage their trees or shrubs as an essential part of the urban forest.
