Free Tree Seedlings

The City of Kentwood will be distributing free red cedar, red maple and white pine tree  tree seedlings to community members throughout the week leading up to Arbor Day. Seedlings will be available for pick up at the Kentwood Activities Center, 355 48th St. SE, from Tuesday, April 25 through Friday, April 28 during business hours or until supplies are gone. 

Share on Social
When you get your seedling, be sure to take a picture when you plant the tree and post it to social media using #GreeningKentwood. Together we’ll make Kentwood a greener community!

We're looking for a few volunteers to help with general event assistance and planting trees. If you'd like to help out, click on the button below to sign up as a volunteer.
