Free resident tree giveaway set for April 9

The City of Bella Vista is hosting a tree giveaway to Bella Vista residents starting at 8 a.m. Friday, April 9 in the parking lot of the city’s Community Development office – 616 W. Lancashire Blvd.

This will be a drive-thru event.

There will be 200 trees and shrubs available until 12 p.m., or until they are gone. Trees and shrubs of various species — including American Beautyberry, Redosier Dogwood, River Birch, Ninebark, Overcup Oak, Pin Oak and Bald Cypress — will be given to Bella Vista residents who provide proof of residency with a current utility bill (one tree per household).

The trees have been provided through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation at the recommendation of Steuart Walton as part of a larger regional project to help increase and diversify the area’s tree canopy
