Free Dogwoods and Azaleas

If you live in the Dogwood Azalea Neighborhood you can get six dogwoods and six azaleas free and plant them the weekend of May 17.

The trees are courtesy of The Dogwood Azalea Neighborhood Alliance.

I know I lost one of my dogwoods to the damage caused by the 2009 ice storm. Many others tree and plant species were lost in the Alliance area as well.

If you are interested, just call the City Action line by May 9 at 270-687-4444 to be put on the list.

Tree pick up will be Friday, May 16 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. at the City of Owensboro Public Works Department at 1410 West Fifth Street.  Residents requesting a free tree will be asked to provide proof of residence within the Dogwood Azalea Neighborhood Alliance with identification and a recent OMU bill.

Also, if you’d like to join, the Alliance is looking for new members.  They meet every other month starting in January at 5:30 p.m. at the Edge Ice Center.  Membership is free.  The neighborhood extends from Twelfth Street to Booth Avenue, between Frederica to Lewis Lane/Roosevelt Road/Werner Avenue.

I took the photos of the Dogwood-Azalea Trail in April, 2011.
