Tree planting season is here! Help King County plant 1 million trees by 2020.

Tree-planting season (our favorite season here at Parks) has arrived!  It’s time to break out your shovel and gloves to give the earth a little tendering loving care. Get growing!

This morning, a group of volunteers welcomed tree planting season by making a small dent in King County’s 1 million tree planting goal.

As part of the Executive’s 2015 Strategic Climate Action Plan, King County is attempting to plant 1 million trees by 2020. The initiative aims to mobilize the public to participate in tree planting and increase public awareness about the value of trees and how to care for them so they have the best chance of survival.

Interested in getting involved with the 1 million trees initiative?
