Each year TreeFolks gives away over 1,000 sapling to anyone who needs one.
Sapling Days began more than 15 years ago as a way to celebrate autumn and early winter — the best times to plant trees in Texas! Trees planted in fall and winter have more time to grow a strong root system that will allow the tree to obtain water during the hot, hot summers in our region. To celebrate planting season, we give away a thousand baby trees! Each season we feature 4 different species of saplings.
No qualifications are necessary – we hope you take home a tree and allow it to grow to provide shade, fruit, beauty, and oxygen for many years to come.
