Eligible residents are encouraged to plant trees on their property to attract wildlife and create privacy.
Do you live near a water body like a stream, river, or lake? This is your chance to receive a free tree to plant on your property. Sound Salmon Solutions, a nonprofit organization, is offering free advice from its ecologists to determine what kind of native trees would be appropriate for your yard. No yard is too small. The organization is offering this to properties that are one acre or smaller. (Have a larger property? Call Kevin at 425-252-6686).
Native trees are an asset to your property — they provide privacy, protect from soil erosion and are visually appealing. Once established, they require little maintenance. Do you enjoy watching warblers, chickadees, and nuthatches? Sound Salmon Solutions will find a tree for you that birds love.
Our ecologist will help you figure out what trees are suitable based upon your needs, desires, and the condition of your yard. During the site visit, Sound Salmon Solutions will help you assess the soil type, drainage, and amount of sunlight in your yard. They will then recommend safe, beautiful trees that are easy to maintain and well-suited for smaller spaces. You will also be provided with a guidebook containing information on tree care and resources.
The ecologist consultations are completely free and there is absolutely no obligation. Selecting the right tree for your property is an important decision, so take advantage of local experts’ knowledge to help you pick a tree you’ll love.
Sign up today. Sound Salmon Solutions are only offering a limited number of personal yard visits on a first come, first serve basis. This project is a collaboration among WSU Snohomish County Extension, Sound Salmon Solutions and the Friends of North Creek Forest, and is funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
