Get Your Own Tree
We've talked about trees quite a bit recently. There was the Diversitree project, which will plant trees in Hilltop. There was the apparent neighborhood feud over fruit trees that escalated to include the City.
Now, you can get a coupon to plant your own tree. The City is offering a program designed to increase Tacoma's canopy coverage, reduce stormwater runoff and beautify neighborhoods through community building planting projects.
For a limited time only, coupons for discounts on trees purchased from select local nurseries are available to Tacoma residents for planting on their private property or in the planting strip/areas abutting their property.
Coupons are limited to one per household and are good from September 2013 to April 2014.
If you're interested in supporting the City's goal of 30% tree canopy coverage for Tacoma by 2030, or if you just like a good argument, think about planting a tree, and visit the City's "Tree Street NW" page to get your coupon for a discount.
The City page also has a long list of resources to help property owners choose the right tree and help it thrive. We hear fall is an excellent time to plant...
