For the very first time, Baton Rouge Green will give away over 70 satsumas to residents of the greater Baton Rouge area.

The fruit trees are being provided through the organization’s City Citrus program, a project that provides free and public sources of fruit.

To qualify to receive a satsuma tree, residents are asked to agree to properly plant, water and maintain your satsuma tree to the best of your ability; share the fruit from your tree with your friends and community and create a free MyTree BR account, and map your tree.

Details on time and location of pick up, as well as other instructions, will be sent in a confirmation email following completion of registration.
