Birmingham’s city tree program is in full swing this month, as the first of the new trees will be delivered to residents soon. If you want to subscribe to get a city tree, you can still do so, by visiting the website.
Each resident that subscribes will get one city tree this month. Trees are handed out now because they need to lie dormant for awhile before spring’s warmer temperatures. Lying dormant at colder temperatures allows the tree to be transplanted to your yard more easily. Come spring however, there will be work involved in caring for your new city tree. Instructions can be found here.
