City of Brunswick Arbor Day Celebration
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The City of Brunswick’s Arbor Day Tree Giveaway will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024.
The City of Brunswick’s Tree Board will celebrate this year’s Arbor Day by giving away native tree saplings to City residents in an effort to maintain tree benefits and preserve tree canopy in the City. The event will occur on Saturday, February 17, 2024, at Mary Ross Park from 9am-12pm, starting with a proclamation from the mayor followed by a tree planting in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and Coastal Greenery.
Thanks to a recent Georgia ReLeaf grant from the Georgia Tree Council, the trees available are Holly, Maple, Dogwood, Elm, Magnolia, Cherry, Sycamore, Oak, Cypress and are available on a first come, first serve basis to City residents while supplies last (proof of city residency required, one per household). This marks the second year that the Tree Board has been awarded the Georgia ReLeaf grant to support the Arbor Day Tree Giveaway. Last year the Board gave away 50 saplings to City residents.
Other tree seedlings will also be available to Glynn County residents thanks to partners Keep Golden Isles Beautiful and Georgia Power Company. The event will also feature other local organizations that support local tree planting and preservation efforts in the community. Additionally, the City will be embarking on a Tree Resiliency Management Plan in the coming year.
The City of Brunswick has been recognized as a Tree City USA community for the past 22 years. For more information, please contact Rick Charnock at (912) 267-5572.
