Dirt Corps is giving away trees to plant in your yard which will provide shade, reduce stormwater runoff into our streams and river, help clean the air and provide year round beauty. Experts will be on hand to help you choose the right tree for your yard and tastes while also giving you instruction on planting and caring for it. A water bag is also provided to reduce watering time during the summer. The types of trees include:
Shrubs – Vine Maple, California Wax Myrtle
Small trees – Douglas Maple, Cascara
Deciduous Trees – Oregon Ash, Garry Oak
Conifers – Jeffrey Pine, Shore Pine, Grand Fir, Western Red Cedar
Supplies are limited, so arrive early for the best selection! Just drive up, indicate which tree you would like, sign the receipt, DIRT Corps members will load your tree, and off you go. You don’t even need to get out of your vehicle! Spanish translator will be available.
