The city is giving away saplings of five species, including this Donald Wyman Preston lilac.

It’s become a tradition in the city: the annual tree giveaway. Some 2,000 baby trees will find homes on May 8 when the Ville de Québec invites residents in six districts to claim a sapling – first come, first served, one per customer.

The species on offer are red maple, serviceberry, Skyline honeylocust, Donald Wyman Preston lilac and Prairie Fire decorative crabapple.
