The Mandarin Community Club will host its annual Tree Giveaway on Saturday, March 11, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. This year’s tree varieties include Fringe, Eastern Redbud, Dahoon Holly, Riverbirch, Poplar, Live Oak. One tree per household will be allocated.
The Mandarin Community Club launched this giveaway initiative after two years of losses to the tree canopy throughout Mandarin from Hurricanes Matthew and Irma in successive years. It was estimated that thousands of trees were lost based on the staggering amount of tree debris at the collection center off Mandarin Road in 2017, which took many months to collect and disperse.
The Mandarin Community Club’s Events Committee needs volunteers to help with the Tree Giveaway. Volunteers are needed for the following duties: unloading (on Friday, March 10), setup, parking, and cleanup. To sign up, call (904) 268-1622. Volunteers can select their tree prior to the giveaway start time.
