Canal Winchester residents will have the opportunity to pick up a free tree at the village's 11th annual free tree giveaway, from 9 to 11 a.m. May 1 at Stradley Place on South High Street.
The first 10 residents who sign a form agreeing to plant a tree in their front yard will be allowed two trees.
According to Canal Winchester's Urban Forester, Dick Miller, the village has implemented the 'Front Yard Tree Program' to encourage homeowners to plant trees in their front yards. The annual free tree give away and the new 'Front Yard Tree Program' are part of the village's Street Tree Advisory Board's initiative to increase canopy coverage throughout the community.
