Tree for All Tree Sale and Planting Workshops presented by Cox

Saturday, November 4, 9am-Noon

Join us Saturday, November 4 from 9am to noon for a day focused on the benefits of trees and how to care for one, or two, of your own. Thanks to our presenting sponsor Cox Communications, along with Rotary Club of Oklahoma City, Cedar Valley Nurseries and a continued partnership with the Tree Bank Foundation, we are offering 1,000 trees to the community for a low cost.

Trees will be available for $9 for members, $10 for nonmembers and individuals can purchase up to two trees per household. In addition, we will offer 100 free trees to the first 100 people at Tree For All.

Enjoy tree planting demonstrations and workshops throughout the day with planting and care tips. We’ll also have a variety of booths and vendors with more information and products for taking great care of your tree.

One of Cox Communications initiatives is focused on reducing waste and energy consumption, as well as conserving water. This makes a day devoted to tree education and plantings perfectly aligned with their focus, as trees offer more than aesthetic benefits.
