"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Free Trees for Your Region

The National Tree Trust (NTT) will provide free trees to be planted on public property (parks, wildlife refuges, green spaces, roadsides, riparian zones, schoolyards, community gardens, etc.).

For more details, read all about this growing program at

This year's deadline is approaching, but they offer trees each year, so put this contact in your records for all those groups you volunteer with, or know could use some native trees to improve the environment and aesthetic appeal of their location.

The National Tree Trust (NTT) is a national non-profit organization, founded in 1990 under the America the Beautiful Act. Their mission is to get people involved in their communities and their environment through tree planting.

Through the Community Tree Planting program, they provide free seedlings to groups in all 50 U.S. states. The country is divided into seven regions and they provide regionally appropriate species to those regions. Most of the trees offered are native species

They also provide containers and soil subsidy for groups who want to grow the trees to a larger size.
