Salem Mayor Justin Green said the City of Salem will be providing free trees until the end of May.

“Although Arbor Day is typically celebrated in April, due to COVID-19 the city was unable to have an Arbor Day-related event last month,” Green said. 

“However, in honor of Arbor Day and to promote tree planting throughout the city, we are giving away free redbud trees from now until the end of the month or while supplies last.”

To pick up a free tree to plant, visit City Hall at any time. 

Trees will be located for pick up by the rear entrance. 

Any leftover trees after the giveaway will be planted at Lake Salinda.
