Tree Giveaway Progam
The co-op offers members a free plant each May in conjunction with Arbor Day. This year (2018) will mark GVEA's 28th Annual Tree Giveaway. Since 1991, over 86,000 trees and shrubs have been given away.
****Do you have a story about a tree or shrub that you received via our tree giveaway program? We'd love to hear it and perhaps see pictures. Interested in sharing your story, submit it using our Contact Form.
