Live Oak Contracting, presenting sponsor for the Arbor Day Festival and Greenscape Tree Giveaway

Greenscape of Jacksonville held its third annual Arbor Day Festival and Greenscape Tree Giveaway April 6 at Jessie Ball duPont Park under the Treaty Oak. The family-focused fundraising event recognized Jacksonville’s official Arbor Day. It was sponsored by Live Oak Contracting, JEA and International Papers. Activities included children’s arts and crafts and educational talks on trees and the environment.

The Arbor Day Festival has replaced Greenscape’s former annual tree sale, instead offering thousands of free trees to visitors on a first-come, first-served basis. This year the nonprofit offered 3,000 trees of four species: Live Oak, Dahoon Holly, Southern Magnolia, and Bald Cypress. Helping tote trees to vehicles were members of Noles in Action, a group of volunteers who are alumni of Florida State University, who chose the Arbor Day event as their community service project for the month of April.
