Fall Tree Giveaway
2020 Fall Tree Giveaway
The City of Bentonville is hosting its twentieth consecutive tree giveaway on Saturday, October 24, 2020. The goal of the giveaway is to increase the city’s overall tree canopy on residential property (commercial property is not eligible for this program), promote a healthier environment and improve the physical appearance and visual character of the built environment.
The giveaway is made possible by the City’s Tree & Landscape Advisory Committee, the Bentonville Parks Conservancy, Steuart Walton, and the Walton Family Foundation.
Trees for Bentonville Residents. Trees are available to Bentonville residents only. Only those residents that live inside the City limits qualify for the tree giveaway. The limit is two trees per household.
Right Tree, Right Place. Do not plant trees under or near powerlines. When the tree grows, the City will need to remove it to prevent obstruction or access to the powerline. Check out The Right Tree in the Right Place information from the Arbor Day Foundation.
Pre-registration. Enables participants to receive advance residency verification and advance tree reservation.
Pre-registration Link. Will open on Thursday, September 24th at 8:00 a.m. At that time or anytime after, please click here to pre-register.
Non Pre-registration Option. For those that do not or could not pre-register because the sign up is full or because the desired tree species is reserved, there will be trees available at the giveaway that are first come, first serve. Bring your ID with name and Bentonville address AND your City of Bentonville utility bill with name and address.
