Edmond Electric and the Edmond Urban Forestry Department will give out 460 free trees at Mitch Park near the Edmond Outdoor Ice Rink on Saturday, Dec. 13th from 8 a.m. – noon.
Trees will be available to Edmond Electric customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers must present a copy of their electric bill to receive a tree. Available species include red maple, red bud, sawtooth oak, red oak, and chinquapin oak.
Residents are encouraged to do the following before picking up a free tree:
• Be sure to consider the available planting spaces around your home since not every site is suitable for every type of tree.
• Please consider the size the tree will become and ensure it will not grow into overhead electric lines.
• Before planting, call Okie (Dial 811) to identify underground utilities
