Thank you Riveredge Members for being a part of the initial giveaway!

Free Tree Giveaway

We’d like to offer FREE TREES to our members AND any other tree loving people out there! Trees are now available for self-serve pick up at Riveredge Nature Center. 

The trees are located in the “East Parking Lot” just to the east of the main visitor center. There are three piles of mulch with signage indicating which row contains which tree species.

Please feel free to take as many as you can get planted this spring!

After you have made your selection and have taken the trees you want, please be sure to cover up the roots of any trees you disturbed with additional mulch.  Bare-root stock trees dry out quickly, and being covered in mulch is critical to keeping them hydrated.

Thanks for making the world a better place!  Happy Planting! 

-The Riveredge Nature Team

Back by popular demand, we’re pleased to once again announce that through a partnership with the Argosy Foundation and the Living Lands and Waters Million Trees Project, we’re able to give away free trees to Riveredge Members!

We have three oak species (Bur Oak, Red Oak, and Swamp White Oak) to choose from; please read below to see the details of what each of these trees requires in order to flourish. Each household can request up to 10 free trees.

These trees are native species to our region and will support an abundance of wildlife for potentially hundreds of years, but we want to also make sure to tell you that these trees will grow very large and will need a suitably large spaceHere is information from the Riveredge Director of Conservation explaining how to plant these trees

Tree pickup takes place Saturday, May 7 at the Riveredge Sugarbush House (4400 County Road Y Saukville, WI 53080) between 9am and 2pm. When picking up trees, please pay close attention to the entrance and exit signs as it is a one-way driveway. Once you submit your order, we’ll be in touch closer to the pickup date about specific details regarding your tree pickup and care.

Thank you for being a member of Riveredge, and for being the roots from which this organization grows!
