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.

The Alliance is also looking for new members. They meet every other month starting in January at 5:30 p.m. at the Edge Ice Center. The neighborhood extends from 12th Street to Booth Avenue, between Frederica to Lewis Lane/Roosevelt Road/Werner Avenue.
