Tree Giveaway Program

“The Washington State Department of Natural Resources has launced a new program to give away trees of historical and cultural significance to cities, counties, ports, schools, colleges and other publicly funded groups in Washington.The Trees for the 21st Century program is designed to re-establish trees native to the state, such as western hemlock – Washington’s official state tree, ginkgo biloba, paper birch, kousa dogwood, and western Red Cedar.The launch of the program is timed to coincide with Washington’s 83rd annual celebration of national Arbor Day on April 12, this year.Communities may choose from five species of trees from 8 to 12 feet tall and available for spring or fall planting.For more information or to request trees, contact the DNR at 360-902-1151.”
