The available trees and shrubs are proven to be “Florida Friendly” and more resistant to strong winds. The selection includes: Beautyberry, Bridalveil, Dahoon Holly, Firebush, Florida Slash Pine, Gumbo Limbo, Milkweed, Pigeon Plum, Pink Tabebuia, Simpson’s Stopper, Verawood, and Walter’s Viburnum. This variety of trees, and shrubs will attract birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Learn more about the variety of trees here.
Each City household or business (proof required) will be allowed up to 3 free trees per property. Plan to arrive early to ensure the best selection – the supply of free trees usually runs out before noon.
To ensure that this opportunity is available to all residents, Oakland Park offers a Tree Assistance Program through the City’s Community Volunteer Corps to aid residents who require special assistance in the delivery and planting of trees.
For more information on the Free Tree Giveaway, please call City Horticulturist Lyzabeth Fiore at 954-630-4420. For Tree Assistance Program requests or if you would like to volunteer with this event, please contact the Volunteer Services Manager Bruce Garrison at 954-630-4502.
Studies have shown that the greenery and shade provide a sense of serenity and wellbeing. Property and business owners are encouraged to take part in our ongoing efforts “greening” our Oakland Park.
The City looks forward to helping our residents and business owners beautify their properties and promote environmental sustainability.
