The Nora-Northside Community Council will have its 22nd annual Free Tree Gift day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 30 at Nora Plaza, 1300 E. 86th St. If trees run out before 3 p.m., the giveaway will end early.
The Community Council offers the giveaway each year to help conserve natural energy, replace the tree canopy, reduce storm-water runoff and provide wildlife habitats, said Ruth Hayes, council president.
This year, the group will give away 400 white flowering dogwoods to anyone who promises to plant them, Hayes said. After the April 30 giveaway, the council will have distributed 10,000 trees to the community.
