From WSJ Staff Reports

The Urban Forestry Division is celebrating Arbor Day this year with a free tree seedling giveaway, virtual tree tour and tree of the year award. 

From now through Tuesday, April 13, Wake Forest residents can pre-order five tree seedlings and have them delivered to their residence beginning Wednesday, April 14. The seedlings consist of a mixture of dogwoods and white oaks. Substitutions and quantity cannot be changed. To order your tree seedlings, complete and submit the order form at www.wakeforestnc.gov/public-works/urban-forestry

Area residents are also invited to experience and enjoy a new online tour highlighting several prominent trees in downtown Wake Forest. Structured around an interactive map and accessible at www.wakeforestnc.gov/public-works/urban-forestry, the virtual tour provides the name and location of each tree, along with a photo and brief description. 

Finally, from now through Friday, April 23, the UFD is accepting nominations from residents for the Wake Forest 2021 Tree of the Year award. Trees may be nominated for their size, species, historic significance, personal meaning, community benefit or general notoriety – but they must be located within the Wake Forest town limits. To submit your choice, visit http://bit.ly/WFTreeofYear, complete the nomination form and upload a photo of your tree.

Finalists will be selected by Town staff, then voted on by the community during the week of April 26. The tree that receives the most votes will be announced as the winner on Arbor Day, Friday, April 30, while the submitter will receive a certificate crowning their tree as the Wake Forest 2021 Tree of the Year.
