Seedlings of the Mexican Plum (Prunus mexicana) will be given away free of charge on a first-come first-served basis. The Mexican Plum is a Texas native, small, deciduous, drought tolerant tree, with bright white flowers and edible fruit. Trees combat planetary warming by serving as a carbon sink, provide shade, decrease the urban heat island effect, lessen erosion, and improve biodiversity. Planting and care instructions will be distributed with the trees. More information: email@example.com
