St. Catharines/Niagara – St. Catharines residents can receive a free tree to plant on their own property at the Free Tree Giveaway, Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Seymour-Hannah Sports and Entertainment Centre parking lot from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until supplies run out.

Five hundred trees will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Trees will be distributed in three-gallon pots and are about three-feet tall. They should easily fit inside a standard car. Residents can choose from four different varieties: American Beech; Eastern Redbud; Sugar Maple and Swamp White Oak.

Forestry experts from the City will be available to answers questions about planting and maintaining the different types of trees. More information about the tree species is available at

To receive a free tree, residents must agree to plant and maintain the tree on private property located in St. Catharines, ideally in their own yards, and not on boulevards, along streets or in City parks. Proof of St. Catharines residency is required (such as a driver’s license) and each household is limited to one tree.

Residents who received free trees at previous Free Tree Giveaways are eligible for another tree at the Oct. 20 event.
