(DeLand, FL) – Hundreds of trees are awaiting their new homes as the City of DeLand and DeLand Breakfast Rotary Club prepare for the
annual Tree Giveaway.
Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, July 20 and ending Friday, July 24th, residents within the city’s Utility Service Area will be able to begin picking up trees from the
city’s Public Works Complex, 1102 S. Garfield Avenue. Vehicles will enter from Amelia Avenue and follow the signs to the giveaway area.
People are asked to bring proof of residence, while those picking up trees for others are asked to bring the person’s written request and
a copy of the other person’s proof of residence. Residents are asked to have the giveaway form filled out to make the process quicker.
