The free trees will be offered in the parking lot behind the Philip Sheridan School located at 3200 Elmwood Avenue in the Town of Tonawanda from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Swanick is teaming with Arida Tree Framers, Grabber and Son Landscaping Nursery, and North Towns Nurseries.

"Everyone should be able to have a Christmas tree during the holidays," Said Town of Tonawanda highway superintendent Bill Swanson.

Volunteers will assist with loading the trees into vehicles until 1 p.m.

The remaining trees will be left in the parking lot for anyone to take.
