NC Bradford Pear Bounty
March 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Participants who remove their Bradford Pear Trees can receive a free, native replacement tree. One tree given for each tree removed, up to 5. Before and after pictures of the Bradford Pear trees you cut down must be shown to organizers at the pick-up to receive replacement trees. Note, this program is geared toward homeowners/landowners. Trees should never be removed from property without the owner’s permission.
Replacement trees will be in 3 gallon pots. There are 200 trees available. First come, first served. Some examples of native trees that have been distributed in the past include redbud, dogwood, serviceberry, black cherry and white oak. Those who RSVP will receive a list as the pick-up date draws near.
The exchange is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required to ensure tree pick-up runs smoothly.
