John Denver would be proud of the NYS DEC because they're helping New Yorkers plant a tree for our tomorrow at this year's Great NYS Fair.

You can get your free tree each day of the Fair by heading to the back of the Exposition Building in the "I Love NY" twice daily.

According to, trees will be handed out at both 10 a.m. and again at 3 p.m. each day of the fair by DEC officers.

The 2-3 year old seedlings are just under 2 feet in length and are wrapped in plastic. The DEC says to plant them as soon as possible, but can be stored in a refrigerator for about a month before planting.

Depending on the day, you'll get a white pine, white spruce or Norwegian pine seedling.

You'll want to get to the Expo Building on time though, because the trees go fast.
