The Woodlands annual Arbor Day Tree Giveaway is set for Saturday, January 25, 2020, from 9 a.m. to noon at its new location at Northshore Park. The Woodlands is celebrating its 44th year of giving away seedlings, making it one of the longest-standing community traditions. This year's event is produced by The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department in partnership with The George Strake District of the Boy Scouts of America and with support from sponsor The Howard Hughes Corporation.
 
Since 1977, more than 1.5 million seedlings have been given away at Arbor Day in The Woodlands. This year, 12 varieties of native seedlings will be available. The selection of seedlings includes a variety of native trees that can be categorized into canopy and understory trees. Trees that make up the canopy, or upper layer of the forest, typically reach heights that range from 40 to 90 feet at full maturity. The following canopy trees are available this year: American Sycamore, Green Ash, Loblolly Pine, Overcup Oak, Southern Magnolia, Sugar Hackberry and Tulip Poplar.

Anybody cares among more than 1.5 million seedlings given away since 1977, how many are still alive today?

We have gone before. None of the trees I got survived, but it's usually a good event.

I think the tall and slim pine trees we have here (Loblolly Pine) need to lean on each other to survive wind/storm. The reason we are losing them quite rapidly even we don't cut them all down when building houses/roads. If you see only one standing somewhere, sooner or later it will die.
