The Hermiston Parks and Recreation Department and the Hermiston Rotary Club will be giving away 1,500 trees during their 35th annual Arbor Day Tree Giveaway, set for Saturday, April 3 in the Smitty’s Ace Hardware overflow parking area.
The drive-through event begins at 9 a.m. Tree choices are red maple, river birch, red osier dogwood, Washington hawthorn, Callery pear, little leaf linden, Japanese zelkova and giant sequoia.
An attendant will take your order (please have it ready) and deliver the trees to your car. Order as many as you’d like, but no more than you can comfortably plant. For more information, call the parks department at 541-667-5018.
