Ruckersville Tree Giveaway

March 14 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Register in advance for free trees! Trees will be available for pick-up on March 14th between 12pm-3:00pm at the Greene County Visitor Center next to Lowes in Ruckersville. Select your trees below.

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 two 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 form at the bottom of this page.

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 2 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:
Serviceberry
Flowering Dogwood
Pin Oak

Instructions on how to obtain your trees:
Register for up to 2 free trees below. Pick up will be on Sunday, March 14 from 12pm – 3:00pm at the Greene County Visitor Center in Ruckersville. We will be in the park behind the main building. 9157 Seminole Trail, Ruckersville, VA 22968
