Our Focus for Tree Planting Projects within Whatcom County:
Planting “right species in the right place” native tree seedlings in sites that have a public purpose or benefit, such as…
— parks, trails & Greenways,
— other public sites (campuses, schools, libraries, etc.),
— multi-user facilities (health care, faith centers, etc.),
— public mitigation sites, buffers & tree ‘banks’,
— urban open spaces (via mini-forests), and
— assisted regeneration forest areas.
