Tree Giveaway Program


He that plants trees loves others besides himself. -Thomas Fuller

The City of Woodburn is offering residents a free tree to plant on their property through the Urban Forestry Tree Giveaway Program. Beginning November 1, residents within the city limits can apply for a gift certificate to receive a selected free tree. Gift certificates can be redeemed at Al's Garden Center in Woodburn. The Tree Giveaway Program will be open to applicants November to April of each year, or until budgeted funds for the program expire, whichever comes first.
