Missouri Conservation Department brings free trees to Neosho

Updated:

The Missouri Conservation Department was giving away nearly 3,000 free trees Sunday at the Neosho Fish Hatchery.
The 25 year tradition invites the public to receive free pine, dogwood, and cypress trees.

Officials say with the cold weather approaching in the next 48 hours...it's important to protect your trees from frost and freeze because they are still developing, and need proper protection to grow.

"These are all seedlings, keep in mind. Some of these are two and three year old seedlings so they're going to grow at different rates. Like for instance if you were to take the white pine and plant it, and if you were to give it an inch of water per week, probably by the end of the year it's going to grow 6 inches." Says Terry Cook, of the MO Conservation Department.

The remaining trees will be given away to anyone that is interested.
You may contact their office at 417-895-6880 to pick up a tree.
