Get spring started with the Adopt-A-Tree Giveaway

In south Texas, February isn’t too early to start planning for spring! The UT Health San Antonio Green Initiatives team can help you get ready with a free tree to plant in your yard.

Trees will be distributed at Lot 2 in front of the Long School of Medicine on Wednesday, Feb. 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. or until supplies last. Trees available include peach, persimmon, orange, Persian lime, Eve’s necklace, redbud and chinquapin oak. One tree per person is available. Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, this is a drive-thru only event with no walk-ups permitted. Masks are also required.

The tree adoption is organized by the Green Initiatives Committee, the Green Student Organization and the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department. The event is part of an effort to enhance the tree canopy in the city.
