The City’s annual tree giveaway is happening soon, with applications opening on Monday, July 15.
Now in its tenth year, Seattle’s Trees for Neighborhoods program has helped plant over 9,300 trees throughout the city since its 2009 start.
There’s a limit of four free trees per household, and a lifetime max of six total per household. The Trees for Neighborhoods program encompasses more than just free tree giveaways: they help participants select the right type of tree and planting location, provide a watering bag and mulch for each tree, give training on proper handling and care, provide assistance applying for street tree planting permits, and offer ongoing care reminders and future pruning workshop opportunities. They also deliver the trees and provide planting assistance.
Here’s the list of trees available for 2019.
The application period for the program will be from July 15 – August 12 — sign up here for updated info on how to apply.
