Jammin' Jams Tree Event (San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department)

SAN ANTONIO – The annual Jammin’ Jams fruit and nut tree adoption event is returning for 2022.

The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department is giving away 2,400 free trees over the course of four events in the coming months.

The first tree giveaway will take place on Saturday at Nelson Wolff Stadium, located at 5757 US-90 W.

One tree will be given per vehicle at the drive-thru event from 8 a.m. to noon, or until supplies run out.

Tree varieties will include apple, apricot, avocado, orange, peach and pecan.
