Did you know that there are more than 500 kinds of conifers? I had no idea until I heard the song, “C is for Conifers” by They Might Be Giants who add, “They’re all over the place but they’re still excellent!”
Speaking of most excellent conifers, the Trees for Neighborhoods program through Seattle reLeaf has re-opened applications for Seattle residents to receive free conifer trees to plant in their yards. Apply online! Remaining available species are: deodar cedar, western red cedar, weeping Alaska cedar, and shore pine. Trees can be picked up on Saturday, November 12th, at Rainier Bean Urban Farm & Wetlands, 5513 S. Cloverdale Street (get directions).
Applications will re-open next fall for other tree species and for street tree permits.
