Tree for All Giveaway and Sale Set for Nov. 3

Tree For All, the Myriad Botanical Gardens tree giveaway and sale event, is back for its second year! Presented by Cox Communications, the first 100 patrons in line on the day of the event will receive a FREE Eastern Redbud, which is Oklahoma’s state tree. Register online here.

Trees are available for $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers with a limit of two trees per household. Trees come in 3-gallon containers and can be up to 7 feet tall. All trees are Oklahoma Proven® varieties that perform best in challenging climates. Guests are encouraged to bring a wagon for transporting trees to their vehicle. Participate in free educational workshops on how to plant and care for your trees, which will be essential in maintaining plant health. A variety of booths and vendors will be on hand for you to visit. Special thanks to our presenting sponsor Cox Communications, along with the Tree Bank Foundation and Cedar Valley Nurseries. 

Cox Communications initiative is focused on reducing waste, energy consumption, and water conservation.  Trees are a terrific way to add beauty, reduce home cooling costs, and remove carbon dioxide.
