Arbor day is coming up on Friday, April 27th, and to celebrate the day there is a free tree giveaway.
Now, keep in mind these are just seedlings, but with care the tiny trees can grow into big ones.
The Free Blue Spruce seedling giveaway is at all Home Depots, FedEx , Kinko's, the Boise Co-op, The Flicks, and the Egyptian Theatre.
More than 28,000 seedlings will be given away.
