Fauquier County Tree Give-Away

April 13 @ 3:00 pm - April 22 @ 6:00 pm

Free

The 50th anniversary of Earth Day is coming up this April and we are celebrating by giving away free trees to residents in Fauquier County!

Trees will be delivered to your doorstep between April 13-April 22. Due to health concerns regarding COVID-19, Friends of the Rappahannock staff will work with you to arrange a delivery day.

This native tree giveaway is made possible by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), support from the Virginia Department of Forestry (DOF), and our partnership with Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) and Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission.

This tree giveaway is focused on Fauquier County and is limited to five trees per person on a first come first served basis. All trees are one gallon size and are a species native to the region. Please register for your choice of trees below.

If you have a property in need of a larger reforestation project, we have other programs that offer up to 100% cost share for trees! More info HERE.

Trees are one of nature’s best resources and provide a wide range of benefits to our environment, economy, and local communities. Each tree planted will have a positive impact.

Each tree planted will:

  • 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, and
  • Provide valuable forage and habitat for fish and wildlife

*Due to grant requirements, all trees are reported to DOF to track the water quality benefits for the Chesapeake Bay Cleanup Program. A trained volunteer will follow up with you to ensure proper installation of the trees and provide additional information or assistance as requested.

For more information, please contact October Greenfield.
