About the Trees

These tress are all native species grown by Woody Warehouse Nursery, Inc. based out of Lizton, Indiana. They use growing techniques that more effectively preserve the critical root systems that newly planted trees need to thrive.

The trees will arrive in 3-gallon grow containers and will be 4 to 6 feet tall. This size is both easy to plant and more likely to effectively establish in its new home. These trees will actually grow taller more quickly than larger balled and burlapped trees because they maintain their entire root stock (critical for tree health) during the transplant process.

Species Options

Each season, we identify a variety and quantity of native trees that are available for purchase, would be desirable options for interested residents or specific planting projects, and that will enhance the overall health of the urban tree canopy in and around Fort Wayne, Indiana. We also purchase trees that will grow to a range of different mature sizes so even residents with smaller yards can have available options.

We strongly encourage researching tree varieties to ensure your preferences are well suited to your growing conditions (such as sunlight, soil health, and available space). The Morton Arboretum website is a great online resource for research trees options.

How it works:

The Tree Canopy Growth Fund is excited to offer a limited quantity of free native trees to area residents willing to plant and care for them on their private property. We usually conduct giveaways in the spring and fall.
