You’ve only got a few days left if you want to apply for free trees for your neighborhood. Monday is the deadline for the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Tree Fund.
The Tree Fund is a simple way for residents to beautify their neighborhood and help the environment, while connecting with their neighbors…Groups of neighbors from at least five households living on a street or block can request from 10 to 40 trees per project. In addition, every participating household can have a fruit tree for their own yard. Information on how to organize your neighborhood, the selections of trees, as well as the application form, can be found at www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/nmf/treefund.htm.
For questions or additional information, contact Judy Brown, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, at 206.684.0714.
