The City of Gulf Shores celebrates 36 years of being named a Tree City with its 36th Annual Arbor Day Celebration, presented by the Gulf Shores Beautification Board. This event will take place on Saturday, February 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Erie H. Meyer Civic Center.
Residents of each household that reside within the Gulf Shores corporate limits may select four different trees from six different varieties:
- Shumard Oak
- Hazel Alder
- Ashe Magnolia
- Red Maple
- Eastern Mayhaw
- American Snowbell
To receive the trees, residents must show proof of residency. The trees are potted in one-gallon containers and are ready for planting. A brochure giving specifics on each tree is available to residents. Members of the Gulf Shores Landscape Division will be onsite to answer questions about the trees.
As an added incentive, 12 lucky attendees will receive a free specialty fruit tree.
