As part of Mayor Nickels' Fall Tree Planting Challenge, the City of Seattle is giving away free trees to Seattle residents to plant in their yards.
On Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Stan Sayres Pits, 3800 Lake Washington Boulevard S, City staff we will be giving away 300 trees.
The trees include more than 100 Thornless Hawthorn with white flowers and a glossy leaf, and 10 other species ranging from small evergreens to large ash.
These trees are not intended to be planted in the street planting strips. Some species are suitable for planting in most yards.
For more information, please call Mark Mead, Seattle Parks and Recreation, 206-684-4113, or visit the web site www.seattle.gov/environment/trees/tree_request.htm.
