It's still a good time to plant trees and RiverLink has free trees for Western North Carolina. In what has become an annual event, RiverLink is the lucky recipient of a donation of trees. Most of them are in one-gallon containers, and include Silver Maple and Poplar. Our anonymous donor grows them simply to make our area greener, and all he asks is that if folks take them, they plant them, and return the empty containers to him so he can grow more for next year.
While the trees are free, RiverLink is accepting donations if recipients are interested.
Trees save energy and money by shading your house in summer, then dropping leaves and letting the sunshine in during Winter. Trees in a city slow stormwater runoff, cool our city and clean our water and air. And trees are just plain beautiful.
Why wait until Arbor Day to get a tree growing in your yard?
Contact RiverLink's Dave Russell at (828) 252-8474, ext. 11, or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pick up of some trees for your yard or neighborhood.
