Arbor Day Giveaway

Arbor Day Compost Tumbler Giveaway

Brookhaven Arbor Day Giveaway

The inaugural Arbor Day giveaway, an annual, local effort to increase the tree population, will go live on Monday, November 9, 2020 this year due to the pandemic.

Compost Tumbler

We will be giving away 1 compost tumbler to one winner in each Town Council District.

Take the Pledge

  • Pledge to plant a tree now to enter the giveaway!
  • You must also follow us on at least one of our social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
  • Submissions must be entered by 11:59 pm on Sunday, December 6.

Additional Information

We recommend planting a Native Tree. Long Island natives naturally thrive in the region’s conditions, requiring less money, and maintenance than non-native species. Natives also reconnect your landscape with the surrounding ecosystem, providing food and shelter for birds and wildlife. Check out this approved list for your next planting.
