CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater will celebrate Arbor Day by giving away 2,100 trees to its residents. The annual tree giveaway is set for Saturday, April 26, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Public Service Complex, 1650 N. Arcturas Ave.

The Florida Division of Forestry will present Mayor George Cretekos with the Tree City USA flag. Following the ceremony, trees will be given to Clearwater citizens. Proof of residency is required and may include a voter’s registration card, Florida driver’s license or a recent utility bill.

City arborists and a state urban forester will be available to answer questions on properly planting and caring for the trees.

Participants can choose up to two trees in three-gallon containers. Varieties include live oak, red maple, slash pine, winged elm, persimmon, four colors of crape myrtle, dogwood, red cedar, Walter’s viburnum, bottle brush, sweet gum, magnolia, and bald cypress.

Later in the day, 50 trees will be given to neighborhood groups participating in the daylong Celebrate Neighborhoods Day citywide block party. Each neighborhood group will receive two trees. A drawing will determine the recipient as an incentive to attending the event.
