Residents and business owners are invited to take advantage of Oakland Park’s second Tree Giveaway of the year beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 23 at Wimberly Field (4000 NE 3rd Avenue).
This event ends at 11:45 a.m. or when all the trees have been given away.
Included in the summer tree selection are a wide variety of trees (including several fruit trees) and shrubs. The young trees and shrubs come in 3-gallon, 5-gallon and 7-gallon containers for easy transport and planting.

The free trees are available on a first come, first serve basis with up to 3 free trees per household or business. Proof of Oakland Park residency or business ownership is required.

Information will be shared regarding proper placement of your selected trees, as well as planting, watering and maintenance tips.

To ensure this opportunity is enjoyed by 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. To learn more about the Tree Assistance Program, please call 954-630-4502.

For more information on the Free Tree Giveaway, please contact City Horticulturist Lyzabeth Fiore at 954-630-4220, or email at LyzabethF@oaklandparkfl.gov

Studies have shown that the greenery and shade provide a sense of serenity and wellbeing. We invite property and business owners to take part in our ongoing efforts “greening” our City.
