In the fall of 2016, we gave away 300 trees to Durham residents. These trees have new homes and will be providing shade, a habitat for wildlife, and other benefits to Durham residents for years! During our giveaways, we had a food drive that benefited Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and collected 275 lbs of healthy foods. We also had the privilege to host tree planting demonstrations that were led by the Alex Johnson-City of Durham’s Urban Forester. It was amazing to see Durham residents come out to get their trees and see their eagerness to plant them.
If you missed the giveaway- don’t be disappointed. We will be hosting another giveaway during Arbor Day 2017, stay tuned for more information.
The Keep Durham Beautiful 2016 Tree Giveaway was made possible by CSX through a partnership with the Alliance for Community Trees, a program of the Arbor Day Foundation.
