The City of Binghamton is once again giving away trees.

The 2014 Street Tree Planting Program provides 75 free trees to plant in front of residential properties, within the utility strip, or the tree lawn.

Trees can cut heating and cooling costs in homes and workplaces, increase the value of a property, and beautify the community.

Binghamton residents can apply for a free tree by submitting an application to the City's Parks and Recreation Department.
