FREE TREE SEEDLINGS
The Broyhill Park Tree Committee is offering FREE magnolia tree seedlings to Broyhill Park residents for planting in your yard (limit 2 per household). These potted trees are easy to plant, and fall is the perfect time to get them into the ground. Here’s what's available:
- Sweetbay magnolia (magnolia virginiana) – grows up to about 25’ and has sweetly fragrant white flowers in the spring
- Bigleaf magnolia (magnolia macrophylla) – grows up to about 50’ and has large, very fragrant white flowers with a red splotch in early summer. (It is not the same as the leathery-leaved southern magnolias so common in this area.)
There are also 2 honeylocust trees and one black locust still available. Each is about 3’ tall and potted.
Send a reply to this email if you’re interested and let us know which seedlings you would like.
