Gulf Shores celebrates 33rd Anniversary as a Tree City USA on Arbor Day February 29


The City of Gulf Shores and the Beautification Board announce plans for Arbor Day to be Saturday, February 29 from 8:30 a.m. – 10: 30 a.m. at the Erie H. Meyer Civic Center. Gulf Shores will celebrate its 33rd year as a Tree City USA on our local Arbor Day.    

Residents of each household that reside within the city limits may select four different trees from the six varieties: American Hornbeam, American Snowbell, Bitternut Hickory, Catalpa, Cherry Laurel and Chinese Chestnut.

To receive the trees, residents must register at the check-in table with proof of Gulf Shores residency.  Residents receive four tickets per qualifying household. 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 additional incentive, there will be a drawing for 12 specialty fruit trees at 9 a.m. Residents who are registered and present will be entered into the drawing.

For more information about Arbor Day, contact the Public Works Department at 251-968-1156.
