The Walton Family Foundation, Steuart and Tom Walton will provide 1,000 trees this year to residents in Benton County to plant around the homes.
“Having grown up in the Ozarks, we know there are certain characteristics that make our communities special – the people, a culture of native Arkansans and new residents from around the globe, and a natural beauty that is a constant companion in daily life. As the region grows, it’s important to continue to foster these qualities that first made our hometown great,” the Walton Family Foundation states.
The Foundation has already distributed 500 trees this past spring to residents around the county. Last year the Foundation awarded more than $27 million to environmental, education and arts initiatives in Northwest Arkansas.
