Newport Tree Society giving away free trees

The Newport Tree Society has announced a program that will provide homeowners in Newport with trees. 

Unlike previous programs, the “Specimen Tree Restoration Program” will provide trees free of cost.

Homeowners who receive trees will be asked to sign a contract promising to take care of the tree.

The Society hopes the program will serve as a model of urban forest management for other cities.

If you are a Newport citizen interested in in the program, visit the Newport Arboretum website at http://newportarboretum.org/home/
