For our FIRST ANNUAL Tree Giveaway in celebration of Louisiana Arbor Day, Baton Rouge Green will be giving away 400 FREE TREES thanks to these two generous, forward-thinking BR-based companies: Bofinger’s Tree Service & Consultants and Lamar Advertising. These groups have committed to work toward replacing A TREE FOR A TREE for every removal that their work requires throughout the year.
All trees, in 10 varieties (see list below), will be native species specially selected for their ability to work hard in our urban landscapes, producing bountiful ecobenefits and health benefits for our citizens.
