City of Bentonville logo

Bentonville, AR… The City of Bentonville is hosting its sixteenth consecutive tree giveaway. The goal of the giveaway is to increase the city’s overall tree canopy, promote a healthier environment and improve the physical appearance and visual character of the built environment.

Approximately 400 trees are available to Bentonville residents only. The limit is two trees per household. A Bentonville mailing address may fall outside of the Bentonville city limits. Only those residents that live inside the city limits qualify for the tree giveaway.

Pre-registration is available which enables participants to receive advance Bentonville residency verification and tree reservation for pickup at any time during the event.

Approximately 50 trees will be available for Bentonville residents that did not pre-register. Proof of Bentonville residency is required.

The giveaway is made possible by the city’s Tree & Landscape Advisory Committee, the Bentonville Parks Conservancy, Steuart Walton, and the Walton Family Foundation.
