Tap into "Tree Power"

The “Tree Power Free Tree” program teams Garland Power & Light with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department to provide a free tree for Garland residents in an effort to conserve energy and beautify the community.

The “Tree Power Free Tree” program will start at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Haskell L. Roach Garden Center, located in Winters Park, 1221 Spring Creek Drive. Staff will provide trees until 5 p.m. or until the supply of trees is gone. The supply is limited, so come early.

In order to receive your free tree you must show you are Garland resident by providing a Texas drivers license with a Garland address or a City of Garland utility bill. Participants will be directed to line up on the southbound lane of Spring Creek Drive next to Winters Softball Complex. One tree per residence please.

The trees are Shummard Red Oak, Cedar Elm, Bur Oak, and Live Oak, four to six feet tall. Planting and care instructions will be provided. For more information call 972-205-3588 or visit www.GarlandParks.com.
