Grow your garden - Free trees for Orange County residents this weekend!

Adopt-a-Tree events seek to give Orange County residents an opportunity to expand their landscape by giving away, or adopting, trees.

Grow your garden - Free trees for Orange County residents this weekend

The University of Florida IFAS Extension Orange County and Orange County are once again giving away trees to Orange County residents.


This weekend, on Saturday, May 18, the Adopt-A-Tree program is back at Downey Park, located at 10107 Flowers Ave, Orlando, FL 32825.


Trees in your landscape can provide a habitat for wildlife, create shade for homes and capture excess carbon in the air, and Orange County residents can pick up available tree species starting at 8 am to 12 pm, OR until supplies last.


There is a limit of 2 per household. Residents are asked to bring proof of residency, in the form of a driver license, photo ID or utility bill.



The species at each event depends on what trees are provided by the nursery. Here are the species of trees expected this weekend.


Tabebuia (yellow)

Crepe Myrtle

Yaupon Holly

Red Maple

Oak, Bald Cypress

Winged Elm

Japanese Blueberry

Red Cedar

Magnolia
