Seattle reLeaf is gearing up to open the application process for its Trees for Neighborhoods program, in which Seattle residents can receive up to four free trees for their yard or in front of their home.

Starting Monday, August 4 at 10 a.m., residents can apply for trees which they can plant around their home.

Since 2009, the program has resulted in the planting of over 4,000 trees in the city limits. The program offers a variety of small, medium, and large trees appropriate for planting under power lines, along the street, and in the yard. This year’s offering includes Montmorency cherryDouglas fir, and Vine maple for yard planting, and White oak and Silver linden for street planting, among others.

Participants in the program receive up to four free trees (a maximum of one cherry tree), a watering bag for each tree, training on proper planting and care, assistance on applying for street tree planting permits, and ongoing care reminders and workshop opportunities, such as pruning.

For more information on the program, click here, or call 206-615-1668, or e-mail treesforneigbhoods@seattle.gov.

    Laster, Jackson and Siena are on a date and Jackson orders her a pizza.
    Miley Cyrus isn’t making or breaking a career with this photo regardless
    of how any groups believe this violated her so-called “Disney” image.
    As it turns out, he recreated her old bedroom from

    Yes, Uncle Pete, let’s cut down all the trees and save our tax dollars for something important.
    Screw oxygen!

    Ma? Pa? Why do you have to fight over such trivial things?
