BEAVERCREEK — The Memorial Day tornadoes destroyed thousands of trees in the Dayton area, which affects the local environment and quality of life in many ways.
The Beaver Creek Wetlands Association in partnership with Dayton Five Rivers Metroparks will distribute up to 250 trees at no cost to Beavercreek residents this fall and next spring.
The fall tree distribution will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 26 at 1981 Dayton Xenia Road.
The trees are native oaks and hickory locally grown by the metroparks. They are in one-gallon containers and are approximately 3 feet tall.
