Free Trees Still Available For Pick-Up Tomorrow

A reader sent us the below information from Jessica, who runs the Trees for Neighborhoods Program.  She says that free trees are still available and can be picked up tomorrow  from 10-2pm at the Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands (5513 South Cloverdale Steet).

After Sunday's workshop, we had a number of conifer trees left without homes! We have re-opened applications for conifers to be planted in yards, and I am hoping that you can help me spread the word.

If you have friends or neighbors who love trees, live within the City of Seattle, and have space to plant some big trees in their yard, please send them to the Trees for Neighborhoods website to apply
Also, if you received less than the maximum of 4 trees per household and you think that you might like to add some conifers to your own yard, feel free to fill out another application.

Available trees include Deodar cedar, Weeping Alaska cedar, Shore pine, and Western red cedar. You can find out more information about each of these species, along with links to pictures here.
Here is a previous post we did 2 weeks ago about the program.

If you are interested in more deciduous trees for your yard,  unclaimed trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 2:30 pm  tomorrow at the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands.
