Lowe’s is giving away 500,000 tree saplings for Earth Day.
The free trees are part of the home improvement chain’s SpringFest event, which features free Garden-to-Go project kits that can be picked up curbside every Thursday in April. Depending on location, the saplings are pine and spruce varieties.
Advance registration at Lowes.com is required and opens a week before the giveaway. At midnight EDT Thursday, registration opens for the free tree saplings that will be handed out April 22.
Consumers are advised to sign up early as the offer is while supplies last.
SpringFest officially kicked off April 8, but registration for the first free kit launched April 1. Both weeks, the reservations filled up fast.
