From the Facebook Event page by the hosts, San Antonio River Foundation and San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department:

Spring is right around the corner and it’s the perfect time to adopt a tree! Supplied by San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department, these 1 gallon FREE native trees need your love and care to grow and join the vibrant canopy which makes San Antonio a beautiful place to live and play.

The benefits of adopting a tree include increased property values, reduced energy consumption, reduced storm water runoff, which in turn helps control flooding, protection of the Edwards Aquifer, cleaner water, and a more resilient, lovely city.

Each household will be allowed to pick one tree of the 500 that will be available for pick-up. You do not need to bring an ID or utility bill but a member of the household accepting the tree must be present.

The trees will available on a first come, first served basis and a full species list will be available soon so be sure to check back on this post so you can plan ahead and pick what tree will work the best for your yard.
