Windermere Treebute

 

After the success of 2021’s Drive Thru Tree Giveaway, the Windermere Tree Board is excited to return for 2022!

 

WHO: Sponsored by the Windermere Tree Board, available to Town residents.* Those who reside outside of the 2.2 square miles of incorporated Windermere will be able to purchase leftover trees beginning at 1pm.
WHAT: Tree giveaway in honor of Arbor Day
WHERE: Town of Windermere public parking lot located on the corner of W 5th Avenue and Forest Street (entrance at W 5th Ave and Main Street). There will be directional signage

This will be a limited contact giveaway to ensure the health of our community. Simply follow the directional signage to the Town of Windermere Public Parking lot at the corner of W. 5th Ave. and Forest Street. Join the line of cars, and a volunteer will be with you shortly. Choose a tree off the menu you’re provided, and a volunteer will bring the tree you selected to your car – no need to get out or do any “heavy lifting!”
