The city of Bella Vista is hosting a tree giveaway to Bella Vista residents starting at 7 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, in the parking lot of the city's Community Development office, located at 616 W. Lancashire Blvd.
This will be a drive-through event.
There will be 100 trees and shrubs available until 11 a.m. or until they are gone. Trees and shrubs of various species -- including Catalpa, Tulip Tree, Northern Red Oak, Zunni Crape Myrtle and Autumn Flame Maple -- will be given to Bella Vista residents who provide proof of residency with a current utility bill (one tree per household).
The trees have been provided through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation as part of a larger regional project. For the fourth consecutive year, the Walton Family Foundation is supporting efforts to bring new trees and shrubs to Northwest Arkansas. The grants, at the recommendation of Steuart Walton, will help increase and diversify the region's tree canopy and complement its widely used outdoor offerings.
