Hundreds of trees given out by Jefferson County Master Gardeners

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In the spirit of Earth Day, the Jefferson County Master Gardeners gave out hundreds of free trees on Saturday.

The trees ranged in variety from dogwoods and rebuds, to pines and spruces. Organizers say 1,100 trees were given away today.

Master gardeners were on site to provide information on the trees, like how to plant them, and selecting the right location for each tree.

"We're encouraging people to plant more trees," said Caroline Westfall, a master gardener. "It helps our environment, it cleanses the pollution and provides oxygen."

Next week, the Master Gardeners will have their annual plant sale. That will also take place at the Louisville Nature Center.
