Greenscape of Jacksonville, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching Jacksonville through planting, protecting and promoting trees, invites the Jacksonville community to the second annual “Arbor Day Festival and Greenscape Tree Giveaway.” The family-focused fundraising event will take place April 6th, Jacksonville’s Official Arbor Day, at Jessie Ball DuPont Park under the Treaty Oak.
The Arbor Day Festival replaces Greenscape’s annual tree sale. Instead of selling trees, the organization plans to give away thousands trees to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Activities will include children’s arts and crafts, a petting zoo, entertainment and educational talks on trees and the environment.
Tree species to be given away: Dahoon Holly, Live Oak, Redbud, American Elm and Bald Cypress
