“The nonprofit will begin accepting applications for seedlings this month. Seedlings, which come in boxes of 100, are expected to arrive from the nursery in January. Deliveries will last until mid-March, and each delivery will include a handbook with tree planting and care information. A tree giveaway event will also be held in Bastrop where up to 5,000 seedlings will be distributed.
“We’re still handing out pines for people in a box of about 100 saplings, and we’re giving instructions on how to plant and provide planting service for those who can’t do it themselves,” said Andreina Alexatos, TreeFolks’ reforestation manager in charge of Bastrop, Hays and Travis counties.”
