Greenscape will celebrate twenty seven years of providing quality plant material to Jacksonvillians as our Flowering Tree Sale gets underway at 7a.m. This annual event presented byJAXPORT provides deeply discounted trees to the public and serves as a fundraiser for Greenscape of Jacksonville, the local non-profit tree planting volunteer organization. Be sure to come early as past years have been very successful and often sell out within a couple of hours! By Mayoral Proclamation, the Flowering Tree Sale is Jacksonville’s official Arbor Day.
Thousands of trees and shrubs will be presented for sale at deeply discounted prices. A wide variety of species are usually offered, from Japanese Magnolias to Knock Out Roses. A final inventory of material will be posted closer to the sale. All material are sold in three gallon containers. Proceeds from the Sale support tree planting programs for Greenscape in Jacksonville. ***Quantities of some items are limited*** CASH or CHECK only
As in the past, representatives from the Division of Forestry, tree growers, arborists, the Duval County Master Gardener Program, JEA Forestry and the American Society of Landscape Architects will be on hand to answer questions and assist in your selections.
