Attention fourth grade classrooms! The deadline to get your free tree seedlings from the Department of Natural Resources is March 15.
It's a tradition that the Wisconsin DNR provides thousands of tree seedlings to Wisconsin fourth grade students in honor of Arbor Day.
The goal is to get kids out on Arbor Day to plant trees. Arbor Day is April 24.
You can place your seedling order on the DNR's website. If you are ordering for more than one school you will need to fill out a separate application for each.
