For the safety of staff and volunteers, participants are required to don face masks while seedlings are being placed in their vehicles.

“Since 1977 more than 1.5 million seedlings have been given to attendees to plant in their yards, nearby green spaces and area preserves,” The Woodlands Township wrote of its event. “Participate in one of The Woodlands longest standing traditions and help plant trees today for our community to enjoy for years to come.”
