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.

Nov 8th, Council members and Lincoln Heights Garden Club members mulch 20 new trees.

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.
