Deadline approaches for free trees for your neighborhood

The deadline is approaching for applications to Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Tree Fund, a program that provides free trees for neighborhoods.  The Tree Fund is a simple way for residents to beautify their neighborhood and help the environment, while connecting with their neighbors.   Applications for the Tree Fund are due on Monday, August 16 at 5 p.m.

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
