The Keep Friendswood Beautiful Tree Giveaway event is planned for Jan. 19 from 8 to 10 a.m. at City Hall in Friendswood.
Along with KFB, the giveaway is hosted also by the City of Friendswood and the Parks and Recreation Department.
More than 100 trees will be given to residents, one per family. The trees include Chinese Fringe, Live Oak, Kay Parris Magnolia, and Drummond Maple. The selection was based on trees that were suitable for the area.
To get a free tree, residents will need to show a water bill or driver’s license. The giveaway is handled in a first come, first served method and no trees will be held nor is delivery provided.
The trees are in 15 gallon containers and those receiving trees must provide their own transportation.
Only Friendswood residents are eligible to receive a tree.
The mission of Keep Friendswood Beautiful (KFB) is to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the city and to encourage residents to take an active role in maintaining its image.
KFB directs and coordinates management and planning of projects and education of the community; recommends budget and project priorities to city council; seeks grants for funding opportunities; makes suggestions for conserving and protecting natural resources and performs such other duties as the city council may reasonably request.
City Hall is located at 910 S. Friendswood Drive.
