Pick Up a Free Tree for Texas Arbor Day

Do you have an empty spot in your yard to fill? Pick up a free sapling during Texas Arbor Day at Mercer! Fall is the perfect time to plant trees in Texas. Cooler temperatures give saplings time to develop a robust root system long before the heat of summer hits.

The celebration begins Saturday, Nov. 2, at 1 p.m. with activities and crafts for all ages, including face painting and a tree-planting extravaganza. Guests can take home a complimentary sapling while supplies last, and a certified arborist will be on site to answer all your tree questions. An outdoor library corner will also be available, with books and resources on everything you need to care for trees.
