In honor of Earth Day, the City of Pittsburgh is giving away trees.
The annual giveaway is sponsored by Mayor Bill Peduto and the Pittsburgh Shade Tree Commission.
The city is giving away flowering dogwood seedlings on a first come, first serve basis.
The giveaway is at noon Downtown at the City-County Building portico.
The city is also celebrating its status as “Tree City USA,” which recognizes the city’s commitment to caring and maintaining trees.
