Trees Available In Hyde Park
This News Item was posted June 1, 2009 and will continue through June
The City of Houston has provided Neartown residents with 100 free
hardwood trees (74 remaining) for streetside planting.
There are two requirements:
the trees must be planted in the right-of-way, and
the new owner must water and feed the trees until established -
usually two years.
There is no limit on the number of trees as long as there is

oak, water oak, sawtooth oak, sweetgum, pecan, cedar elm, winged elm
and bald cypress.
For specific questions or to arrange for viewing and pickup, contact
Kathy Schipper at kathleenca...@sbcglobal.net.
The address is 1118 California, a green house located one block north

last giveaway I am doing. Historically they go fast once the word gets
