Hamilton is giving away free trees and compost

If you’re a Hamilton homeowner, you may be able to get your hands on a free tree and some free compost

The city is giving away native trees to Hamilton residents who own property and are able to plant a tree in their yard. They’re also giving away compost to locals for use in their lawns and gardens. 

Those interested can visit Turner Park at 344 Rymal Road East on Saturday, May 6th and May 13th from 7 am to 12 pm each day to pick up the trees and compost while quantities last. It’s recommended residents arrive early to avoid disappointment. 

Some of the species of trees available include ornamentals like Blue Beech, Cherry Birch, Dog Wood, Paw Paw, Service Berry, Redbud, and Cucumber Magnolia; or shade trees like American Beech, Basswood, Sycamore, White Oak, Kentucky Coffee, White Spruce, Common Hackberry, or Chinquapin Oak. 

Residents are limited to one tree per property, and must present a driver’s license or property tax bill in order to claim one. Each tree is approximately 1 metre tall, and residents who claim one are responsible for its planting, watering, and maintenance.
