17th Annual Tree Giveaway to be Held January 28 at 9 AM

The Terrebonne Parish Tree Board will celebrate its 17th Annual Tree Giveaway Saturday, January 28, 2023, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Main Branch Library in Houma, LA. This year’s tree giveaway celebration includes the distribution of 220 trees in 3-gallon containers and 1,000 seedlings.

The giveaway will feature 20 of each of the following tree types:

  • Pond Cypress
  • Cherry Laurel
  • Nuttal Oak
  • Parsley Hawthorn
  • Red Maple
  • Buttonbush
  • Swamp Chestnut Oak
  • Sweet Bay Magnolia
  • Water Tupelo
  • Live Oak (may be substituted)

The following seedling types will be available:

  • 450 – Red Shumard Oak
  • 400 – Willow Oak
  • 150 – Cedar Elm

This event is for Terrebonne Parish residents only, and there will be a limit of two trees per household. The Tree Board will open registration at 8:30 a.m., and the tree giveaway will begin at 9:00 a.m.

This Tree Giveaway program is made possible by a generous grant from the Apache Corporation Tree Grant Program. Through their support, Terrebonne Parish citizens can benefit from the physical and mental health advantages of being exposed to healthy, lush trees.

The La Terre Master Gardeners, LSU AgCenter, and members of the Parish Tree Board will assist each resident in choosing the right tree from a selection of native Louisiana species and instruct them on how to plant and care for their tree of choice.

The purpose and goal of the Tree Board is primarily the planting and preservation of trees on Parish-owned public properties. The Tree Board typically meets once a month at 11:30 a.m. at the Waterlife Museum. For more information on the Tree Board, visit tpcg.org/treeboard. If you are interested in becoming a member of the board, access the application at tpcg.org/boardvacancies.
