Arbor Lodge Fruit Tree Giveaway – Pacific Madrone's now available

Arbor Lodge Fruit Tree Giveaway – 2023

New Trees! Yes, all the fruit trees are reserved, blueberry bushes too, but we have a new tree to offer you. If you've ever wanted to add the graceful Pacific Madrone to your yard, this might be your chance for free. These trees need full sun and very good drainage, so a slope is best. Go to and scroll until you find the sign up for Madrone trees.

The distribution is in person on Saturday, March 4th, 10-12 noon at Arbor Lodge Park on the east side near Dekum Street.
