Tree Pick up will be Friday, May 17 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the City of Owensboro Public Works Department, located at 1410 West 5th Street. Residents requesting a free tree will be asked to provide proof of residence within the Dogwood Azalea Neighborhood Alliance with identification and a recent OMU bill.
