MARTIN COUNTY --

Martin County Master Gardeners will present their annual tree give-away at the Martin County Extension Office in Stuart on Jan. 19 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event recognizes Florida's Arbor Day.

Seedlings of the South Florida slash pine will be offered for free with a limit of 10 trees per family.

A native to the Southeastern U.S., the slash pine tree has 5- to 11-inch long needles and can reach a height of between 50 and 70 feet when mature.

Martin County Extension staff and master gardener volunteers will be available to discuss proper siting, planting and maintenance of the new trees.

The Martin County Master Gardener program trains and provides continuing education for horticulture volunteers through the University of Florida/IFAS Cooperative Extension Service.

Master gardeners are trained volunteers who provide residents environmentally sound, research-based gardening information.

The goals of this program are to increase the availability of horticultural information for the community at large and to improve the quality of life for Martin County residents through horticultural volunteer activities.
