Town to give away free tree seedlings Saturday

Back To Front Page


The Town of Chesterton will be giving away 600 free tree seedlings this Saturday at the Chesterton European Market in celebration of 23 years as a Tree City USA.

Members of the Tree Committee will be distributing Hazelnut, Paw Paw, White Pine, Norway Spruce, and Chinkapin Oak seedlings. New to this annual give-away are Hazelnut, a shrub or small tree that produces edible nuts in as early as two years; and native Paw Paw, which produces an edible fruit that tastes like a mango.

A forester and landscape architect will also be available to answer tree and landscaping questions.

The giveaway will begin at 8 a.m. and supply is limited, so come early for best selection as trees are usually gone by noon.

Look for the Tree City USA booth in downtown Thomas Park.
