Kristine Kimbro is the Urban and Community Forestry Coordinator for the Forestry Division and she stated in a press release;
“Adding trees to your yard or to a community forest is beneficial to all Arkansans, and Spring is an excellent time to plant trees.”
Who doesn't love trees? Especially free trees?  Below is the schedule of when and where the free bare-root seedlings will be handed out at. The trees will vary at each location but they will all be trees that are native to Arkansas and that can easily grow in each specific region of the state.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
