Savor the Square Tree Giveaway
April 30 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us on for the second Savor the Square tree giveaway event! We had such a blast, we’re coming back again. We’re partnering with The American City Coalition and a whole host of others to give away free trees. This lively springtime gathering will celebrate the beauty and benefits of trees as well as the range of local environmental groups who are centering community resilience and equity in their work.
We’ll be distributing free 5-gallon trees to residents of Lower Roxbury. Reserve your free tree online.
Roxbury is confronted with a number of environmental and public health challenges as a result of low tree canopy cover. This event provides several community benefits:
- Community-based actions to grow Roxbury’s tree canopy and help clean our air, cool our streets, and reduce the effects of climate change
- Improvement of Roxbury’s urban resilience and measures to promote environmental equity in one of Boston’s marginalized neighborhoods
- An opportunity for residents to safely engage in a day of festivities and fun under the sun (fingers crossed), to learn about what trees offer and to meet local organizations striving for a more just and equitable Boston.
