Fifty trees will be handed out on a first come first serve basis at the Westborough Public Library on Monday, April 25.
Last year, I stopped by the Department of Public Works (DPW) building on Oak Street to pick up one of the 50 free saplings being given away to residents for Arbor Day. Today, one year later, I took this photo of my little sapling. It made it through the winter on my back porch and will soon be strong enough to plant in the yard. On Monday, April 25, the DPW will again be giving away trees in honor of Arbor Day. The distribution will take place at the Westborough Public Library beginning at 10 a.m. Fifty Douglas fir saplings will be given to Westborough residents on a first come first serve basis.
