Tree Giveaway for Sperryville

March 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Register in advance for free trees through this Friends of the Rappahannock event! Trees will be available for pick-up on March 13th between 10 am-1pm at Pen Druid Brewery. Select your trees through the FOR website.

Trees strengthen our community by increasing property values, making public spaces more livable and improving our environment. This native tree giveaway is made possible by grant funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Arbor Day Foundation.

This tree giveaway is limited to three trees per family. Pre-registration is required. All trees are 1 to 3 gallon size and are a species native to the region. Please carefully read the “Important Notes” section below and register for your choice of trees using the FOR website.

Native trees help our environment and our community in numerous ways, including:

  • Sequester carbon to improve air quality
  • Regulate temperatures in our urban environments
  • Increase property values in our neighborhoods
  • Catch and filter polluted stormwater before it enters our local streams
  • Stabilize soils and stream banks preventing erosion
  • Provide valuable forage and habitat for fish and wildlife

Important notes and rules for giveaway:
-Limit 3 trees per family.
-Consent for Tree Inspection. Due to grant requirements, all trees given away must be tracked and reported for the Chesapeake Bay Cleanup Program. By receiving a tree, you agree to provide photo documentation of your planted tree.
-Right Tree, Right Place. To maximize the chances that your tree will survive and flourish in its new home, and to minimize the risk of property damage or other inconvenience, it is important to select the right species for your property.

Species Available:
Flowering Dogwood
Pin Oak
