THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Howard Hughes Corporation has announced the return of The Woodlands Arbor Day Tree Seedling Pickup for residents to collect free tree seedlings on Saturday, January 26 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Hughes Landing.
Since 1977, The Woodlands’ developer has given away more than 1.5 million tree seedlings at Arbor Day. This year, more than 44,000 tree seedlings will be handed out, representing nine varieties including Bald Cypress, Laurel Oak, Live Oak, Loblolly Pine, Overcup Oak, River Birch, Sawtooth Oak, Silky Dogwood, and Water Oak.
“We are pleased to continue the popular tradition of Arbor Day in The Woodlands, which enriches the natural beauty of the community, by offering a convenient tree seedling pickup. Residents and visitors are encouraged to collect their tree seedlings and plant them at their home or in reserves and forested preserves,” said Heath Melton, Vice President, Master Planned Communities, Residential for The Howard Hughes Corporation.
The Woodlands Township has continued their partnership with The Howard Hughes Corporation with a Tree Sponsorship. “Trees are very important to the basic foundation of The Woodlands,” said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch. “We encourage all of our residents to take part in Arbor Day and plant seedlings to protect, appreciate, and participate in the regeneration of our forest. Trees are great for us in so many ways, from cleaner air, shaded walks, and bike rides on our miles of pathways to just the splendid beauty from our roadways.”
Berkeley Services is a participating sponsor.
