Free Trees to Combat Global Warming and the Emerald Ash Borer, starting June 4th

Christopher Brown and Elizabeth Black, joint owners of Your Neighborhood Christmas Tree Farm, are pleased to announce that they once again have 500 small seedling trees to give away this summer, starting Saturday June 4th at 7AM.  The give-away will run until all the trees are gone. 

With the arrival of the Emerald Ash Borer in Boulder, NOW is the time to plant that replacement tree for your ash tree.  Then you can sit back and enjoy your ash tree for as long as it lasts, secure in the knowledge that when it dies you will have a new good-sized tree established to take its place.

The free trees are 1 – 3 foot tall Russian hawthornes, Kentucky coffee trees, lindens, horse-chestnuts, hackberries, choke cherries, ginnala maples, honey locusts, pagoda trees, oaks and catalpas.  There are also some golden currants, lilacs, wisteria and the aggressive North Boulder rose, which deer are afraid of.  All trees are drought resistant, but of course will grow faster and fix more carbon with extra water.

This is the 10th year Your Neighborhood Christmas Tree Farm has given away trees.  They are located on 13th St, one block east of Broadway between Upland and Violet.  Look for “Nelly-Belle the Carbon Cart” in front of the house, and pick out your tree.  Planting instructions are in a box on the cart. More information about planting your tree may be found at this link:

“Growing trees fixes carbon and helps combat global warming.  Trees eventually die or are cut down, and burned or rot, returning carbon to the atmosphere.  But in the mean-time, the trees' roots and the soil microbes around the trees fix carbon in the soil permanently.  Planting trees sequesters carbon, helps buy us more time to find long term solutions to Climate Change, and can make your life much more pleasant and cool,” says Elizabeth.
