City of Bentonville

2020 Fall Tree Giveaway

This sign up will be live at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 24th. 

The City of Bentonville is hosting its twentieth consecutive tree giveaway on Saturday, October 24th at Memorial Park from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. The parking lot location map is near the bottom of the page, before the sign up, under related files.

The goal of the tree giveaway is to increase the City’s overall tree canopy on residential property (commercial property is not eligible for this program), promote a healthier environment and improve the physical appearance and visual character of the built environment.

The giveaway is made possible by the City’s Tree & Landscape Advisory Committee, the Bentonville Parks Conservancy, Steuart Walton, and the Walton Family Foundation.

TREES FOR BENTONVILLE RESIDENTS 

Trees are available to Bentonville residents only. Only those residents that live inside the city limits qualify for the tree giveaway. The limit is two trees per household

RIGHT TREE, RIGHT PLACE 

Do not plant trees under or near powerlines. When the tree grows, the City will need to remove it to prevent obstruction or access to the powerline. Check out The Right Tree in the Right Place information from the Arbor Day Foundation:
