Boise Mayor McLean has a goal to plant 100,000 new trees in and around Boise over the next 10 years. A start to that goal is that The city of Boise and the Treasure Valley Canopy Network are giving away 500 trees next month to residents. The City of Trees Challenge will improve the community's environment and help combat climate change.

If you want to get your hands on one of the free trees you have 15 different options. Reserve them here. Keep in mind there are only 500 available for reservation and you only have a few days because registration ends on September 29th. The Boise Farmers Market has also partnered with the program and there is where you can pick up your free tree.

Depending on what type of tree you choose with depend what week you pick up from the farmers market, they will only have a couple different varieties each week. It is also important to note, these are mature trees, some 5 to 7 feet tall. So if you register in time and get one make sure you have a truck or large van or SUV to be able to haul it away. There will be people there to help teach you about the tree and help you load it. There will even be free mulch available from The Boise Park's and Recreation's Community Forestry division.
