To protect our island environment and encourage our residents to plant native trees and shrubs, a variety of organizations across the state routinely organize educational events where trees and shrubs are given away. Annually 6,000 to 7,000 native and exotic plants are distributed.
We will post the details about Arbor Day giveaways across the state when plans have been finalized. Please check back with us in October.
Special recipes using local fruit
Because fruit trees are given away at some of the Arbor Day events, we have posted a few recipes that use locally grown fruits and nuts.
