Tree Giveaway Progam
The co-op offers members a free plant each May in conjunction with Arbor Day. This year (2019) marked GVEA's 29th Annual Tree Giveaway. Since 1991, over 86,000 trees and shrubs have been given away, all in an effort to educate our members the importance of planting the right tree in the right place.
****Do you have a story about a tree or shrub that you received via our tree giveaway program? We'd love to hear it and perhaps see pictures. Interested in sharing your story, submit it using our Contact Form.
This year's event took place on Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 9am to noon.
