City of Seattle giving away free trees

If you’re dreaming of more foliage in your yard, you’re in luck: the City of Seattle has announced its 2012 Trees for Neighborhoods free tree give-away. The offer is for up to four trees per household to plant in residential yards. They’ll also throw in free watering bags, training on proper planting and care of trees, and ongoing tree car support.

Applications for street trees are due on September 1, and yard tree applications are due October 21 (download an application or apply online here). The offer is for Seattle residents only. The free trees can be planted anywhere in residential yards, but they must be planted at the address on the application, and permits are required for planting street trees. There is a limited supply of free trees, and are on a first-come, first-served basis. To look at the available trees, click here.

The offer is part of Seattle reLeaf. Click here for more info.
