Want to beautify your home and neighborhood? Build a healthy community? Here’s your chance! Trees for Neighborhoods provides up to 4 trees per household to plant in residential yards. In addition to free trees, participants in the program receive free watering bags, training on proper planting and care of trees, and ongoing tree care support. Street tree applications will be due September 1 and yard tree applications will be due October 21. However, many species do sell out quickly, so submit your application as soon as possible.
To check out the beautiful tree species available and application information go to www.seattle.gov/trees/
