Free Trees at Corsica River Day in Queen Anne’s County
Landowners Can Reserve Native Seedlings by Sept. 13
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources will give away native tree seedlings Sept. 16 at Corsica River Day at Corsica River Yacht Club in Centreville. The event is sponsored by the Corsica River Conservancy, Corsica River Yacht Club and Queen Anne’s County.
Available species include mixed oak (pin and white), with a limited number of redbud, river birch, eastern red cedar and bald cypress.
About 50 trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tree species cannot be reserved but can selected at time of pickup.
Each one-gallon, containerized native tree seedling is approximately 1-2 feet tall. To help protect the health of the seedlings, the department will also provide a free tree tube, stake and bird net while supplies last.
To reserve a free tree, interested landowners should contact Brittany Haas at 410-819-4120. Trees must be reserved by Sept. 13, and picked up at the Maryland Forest Service table between noon and 2 p.m. Sept. 16.
