The City of Bentonville's Spring Tree Giveaway took place on Saturday, April 22nd, 2023. Watch this page for updates on the 2024 Spring Tree Giveaway.
The tree giveaways are available to Bentonville residents. Only those residents that live inside the city limits qualify for the tree giveaway.
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.
Tree Planting Tips
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.
