The Newport Tree Conservancy today shared details regarding their Specimen Tree Restoration Program.

The program provides unique trees to be planted anywhere on private property in the City of Newport. The trees, which are limited in availability, are free in exchange for the commitment to plant and maintain the tree.

Each year the Newport Tree Conservancy provides free trees to Newport residents in an effort to help enhance residents’ yards and to help the Newport Tree Conservancy promote the continued health and diversity of our legendary urban forest.
