Free seedlings and five-gallon trees will be distributed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, September 30th, at the Mar Vista Recreation Center, 11430 Woodbine St., Mar Vista.

Two hundred trees and hundreds of seedlings will be given away, first come, first served, from a selection of trees until they are gone.

The giveaway in Mar Vista is one of 15 different locations throughout Los Angeles that is part of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s “Million Trees L.A.” campaign to encourage residents to plant trees in their yards.

Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl will kick off the event in Mar Vista with a ceremonial tree planting at 10 a.m.
