The City’s Forest Spokane project has funded 3 tree projects in Lincoln Heights. More than 30 large trees (6-14′) were planted along the SE Blvd parkway, and on the 35th Ave Greenway. On Saturday, November 8th, 20+ neighbors turned out to add mulch to the new trees. Lincoln Heights Garden Club supplied and planted a variety of spring bulbs. SusieForest provided snacks and offered suggestions for adopting a newly planted tree and making it part of family rituals – bird feeding, xmas decorating, etc.
Neighbors adjacent to the plantings have volunteered to water the trees in warm weather, until these native trees are well-established.
LHNC is grateful to the City for the award, and to can-do neighbors who partnered on this project.
