Florida Arbor Day Trees Gone In Minutes During Century Tree Giveaway

January 21, 2023

The Florida Forest Service and the Town of Century distributed 125 trees in just a few minutes during a Florida Arbor Day tree giveaway Friday morning.

“We had a big turnout,” Century Mayor Ben Boutwell said. A line had formed by start time, and most of the trees were gone, two per person, in about 10 minutes.

Live oak, red maple, mayhaw, red cedar and dahoon holly were available in Century. The red maple trees were the most popular.
