To honor the memory of loved ones lost due to COVID-19, the State of Arkansas through the Arkansas Department of Agriculture is donating 10,000 oak tree seedlings to families.

“Our deepest sympathy is extended to the Arkansas families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19,” said Secretary of Agriculture Wes Ward. “We are deeply honored to provide a remembrance to these families on behalf of the State of Arkansas.”

Families are asked to call to arrange a time to pick up the seedlings. Forestry Division office locations will be taking calls and assisting individuals with seedling pick up Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The seedlings will be available through March 24 at these locations:
