Visitors this weekend to the Feria del Ambiente at the Antigua Aduana will be able to take a tree home.
The chamber of electrical distributing cooperatives said Thursday it will make a tree a gift to 600 persons.
This is the 12th annual fair, and it is organized by the
Ministerio de Ambiente y Energía. Inauguration is this morning, and the fair runs through Sunday at the glassed facility that is east of the old customs building.
The Cámara de Empresas de Distribución de Energía y Telecomunicaciones said that visitors might have their choice of some popular hardwoods or even fruit trees like orange. Trees are good for keeping soil in place. The chamber has a display stand where the trees will be distributed.
