250K Tree Day: Tree Giveaway

  • Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum 2743 Wimpole Avenue Knoxville, TN, 37914 United States (map)

PLEASE NOTE: The location of this event HAS BEEN MOVED and will now take place at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum.

On February 24, 2018, 50,000 volunteers across the state of Tennessee will collect 250K trees to plant.  This single day event emphasizes the Tennessee Environmental Council's vision of "A Tennessee that embraces natural resources as the backbone of our communities, economy, and quality of life for all present and future generations."

Trees Knoxville will serve as one of several distributors of the saplings in Knoxville. Dogwoods or hawthorns, red oaks, redbuds, and yellow poplar white pines will be available. To reserve your free saplings, we encourage you to register ahead of time on this website. When checking out, choose Trees Knoxville or any of the other seven Knoxville pickup locations. Pick up your sapling/s on 2/24 between 9AM and noon, plant your tree that day, and be a part of this statewide movement to green Tennessee!

A big thank you to the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum for hosting Trees Knoxville for this event.
