Residents have until Sunday, September 29 to register to receive free trees through the Worcester Tree Initiative’ first Auburn giveaway.
How to Reserve Trees
You can reserve up to 5 trees online. When you arrive at Pakachoag Church on October 6, you will check in, attend the training session, then leave with your trees.
WTI recommends a pickup, minivan or a trailer.
If you want more than 5 trees – yes, you can get more – or if you don’t have access to a computer, you’ll need to call Seward directly at (508) 852-6400. “We just have to make sure the trees are being planted where they are supposed to be planted” said Seward. “We haven’t had a lot of problems, but there have been some. We just need to make sure.”
Reservations should be submitted by September 29 in order to have the trees delivered and prepped in time for the October 6th giveaway. Seward adds that there are some extra trees available on event day. But in order to get the types of trees you want you’re better off submitting your request.
The giveaway will take place October 6 from 12pm-2pm at Pakachoag Church, 203 Pakachoag St., Auburn.
