Free Trees for Kingston Residents?

This is a great idea:
Officials are examining the possibility of offering some free trees as part of the annual city-sponsored street tree planting season.

City Planner Suzanne Cahill said Monday that a decision about whether to give away trees will likely be made by the city’s Tree Commission by the end of this week.
The presence of trees in a neighborhood, especially if they're older trees with a nice canopy, pays enormous dividends. They make the neighborhood far more attractive, they enhance property values and tax revenue, and they make businesses want to locate in that particular area -- all for a very small investment. Planting trees is a win-win for everyone involved.
