24th Annual Community Tree Giveaway
Keep Denton Beautiful (KDB) and the City of Denton will offer free trees to Denton residents at the annual Community Tree Giveaway on Saturday, Oct. 22. The Community Tree Giveaway is KDB’s largest and longest-running tree distribution effort, and 2022 marks the 24th year of the one-day giveaway event. By participating in programs like the Tree Giveaway, Denton residents enhance Denton’s urban tree canopy and help our city thrive environmentally and economically.
To receive a tree, Denton residents must register online at www.dentonparks.com beginning Oct. 4. There is a maximum of one tree per Denton household. Spots are limited on a first come, first served basis. Registration will close once all spots are filled. All trees must be picked up on Oct. 22.
A total of 700 trees will be distributed, with seven different species offered, all of which are drought-tolerant, and native or well-adapted for Denton soils and climate. Available tree species include: Brandywine Maple, Loblolly Pine, Mexican Sycamore, Purpleblow Maple, Roughleaf Dogwood, Sweetgum, and Texas Redbud. Information about the available tree species, tree planting and care resources for this year’s giveaway can all be found at www.kdb.org.
On the day of the giveaway, proof of Denton residency will be required (I.D. or utility bill). Trees
will be placed in vehicles by KDB volunteers in a drive-thru fashion to help quickly move traffic. For more information about the Community Tree Giveaway, including available trees and tree-planting resources, visit www.kdb.org or call (940) 349-8737.
