Trees create such a beautiful landscape for our city and other great added bonuses.  According to Save A Tree, “Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife.”

This Saturday will be a Tree Seedling Giveaway hosted by the City of Tuscaloosa – Government and partners.  According to the Facebook page event, “The City of Tuscaloosa, along with the Alabama Power Service Organization and the Alabama Forestry Commission, will be giving out 5,000 bare root tree seedlings during its annual Arbor Week tree giveaway. The seedlings, consisting of several different tree varieties, will be given away on a first come, first served basis. There is also the opportunity to learn tree planting tips and proper tree placement. Invite your friends and we will see you there!”  The event will be held this Saturday, February 15th from 8 am to 11 am at the Tuscaloosa River Market located at 1900 Jack Warner Parkway, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35401.
