NEOMED to Celebrate Arbor Day by Providing Free Tree Seedlings to Public

Northeast Ohio Medical University will get in the spirit of Arbor Day in a big way by providing 200 free tree seedlings to the public on Friday, April 26, 2019. The seedlings will include hemlock, white pine, red maple, white spruce, red oak, and redosier dogwoods.

Seedlings will be handed out from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the atrium of the NEOMED Education and Wellness (NEW Center), located at 4211 State Route 44 in Rootstown. The giveaway is first come, first served. One seedling will be given out per person.

NEOMED was recently designated with Tree Campus USA status by the National Arbor Day Foundation for its efforts to promote the growth and maintenance of healthy trees. This event is sponsored by the University’s Tree Campus USA committee.
