INTERESTED IN FREE TREES FOR YOUR YARD OR PLANTING STRIP?

Through the City of Seattle’s Trees for Neighborhoods project, Seattle residents can apply for up to 4 free trees for their yard or planting strip. Participants receive trees, water bags, mulch, and planting and care instruction. While many of this year’s small ornamentals have sold out, you can still apply for 1 of 5 gorgeous conifers that will add beauty and grace to your yard. If you have the space, consider planting one of three native conifers we’re offering this year: thegrand fir, western hemlock, or western redcedar. For small, narrow spaces, plant the graceful Serbian spruce. Consider the deciduous bald cypress as a street or yard tree and enjoy its changing color. Bald cypresses are excellent urban trees because of their adaptability, even winning the Society of Municipal Arborists’ Tree of the Year award!
