Free trees for the Eastside!

Planting and protecting trees for a better future

Spring Tree Giveaway

We distributed more than 1,300 trees at our annual Spring Tree Giveaway in March. The response to our giveaway was amazing. All the trees ordered were given away to Eastside residents and organizations.

If you missed this opportunity, watch for these upcoming giveaways:

  • Support 300 Trees with a tax-deductible donation.

Bellevue’s newest mini-forest

On a stormy weekend in late October 2021, dozens of volunteers planted 300 trees on the Sammamish High School campus, fulfilling the vision of students and overcoming significant challenges posed by a pandemic and no budget.
