“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
The City of Winter Park’s Urban Forestry Program has partnered with the National Arbor Day Foundation and the Florida Forest Service for the Community Canopy Program, which offers a free tree to Winter Park residents now through November.
Residents can choose from several tree species including bald cypress, sweetbay magnolia, and live oak. The one-gallon tree will then be delivered directly to their home, along with planting instructions.
The National Arbor Day Foundation is the world’s largest membership non-profit dedicated to planting trees. Its Community Canopy Program is designed to offer cities an easy solution for providing trees to residents in their communities.
