Free seedlings in honor of Arbor Day


By Ann Bond

Special to The SUN

In honor of Arbor Day, the San Juan National Forest will be offering native ponderosa pine seedlings free to the public on a first-come, first-served basis from Friday, April 22, through Friday, April 29, or as long as supplies last, at its office in Pagosa Springs.

Donations to the forest’s Plant-a-Tree Program are encouraged to help cover the costs of collecting, storing and growing native trees to reforest burned areas on the San Juan National Forest.
