Annual Tree Fair to be Hosted by People for Trees
The Annual Tree Fair sponsored by People for Trees will take place on April 24, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the City Center Green in North Port. Hundreds of three-gallon native trees (four to eight feet tall) will be for sale for only $15 each. Choose from numerous tree varieties such as sweetgum, elm, bald cypress, slash pine, longleaf pine, southern red cedar, dahoon holly, pignut hickory, red maple, sycamore and sugarberry.
Informational “Tree Talks” will be also held throughout the morning on all of these native trees, starting at 10 a.m. There will be tree planting and tree climbing demonstrations. Florida Master Gardeners will be in the tree nursery area to answer questions about the native trees for sale and to provide information on Florida-friendly gardening. Music and food trucks will be onsite as well. People for Trees is a non-profit native tree advocacy group that has operated in North Port since 1997.
