Dr. Garland Forbes started giving away trees three years ago to show appreciation to dental colleagues. Today, he's inviting the public to pick up trees to plant. He'll have 1,000 of the 10- to 16-inch first-generation longleaf pine seedlings to give away from 8 a.m. to noon — or until supplies run out — at Pioneer Park during the Dunedin Green Market. Forbes is a local endodontist who specializes in root canal treatments at practices in New Port Richey and Dunedin.
