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.
When plans are finalized, we will post descriptions of the Arbor Day events taking place in November 2014.

Because fruit trees are given away, we have posted a few recipes that use locally grown fruits and nuts.
