Working with the City
To achieve its goal of 75,000 new trees by 2050, the City of Bellevue is considering a free tree program like Seattle’s Trees for Neighborhoods program. However, Seattle’s program is currently planting less than half the annual number of trees that Bellevue needs, and it’s expensive (about $150 per tree).
300 Trees is ready to work with the City to achieve its goal. We are already operating a free tree program many months before the City can start. We are gaining practical experience and insights we can share.
300 Trees provides neighbor-to-neighbor connections and working relationships with homeowners.
With the resources and reach of the City and the enthusiasm of our volunteers, we believe this is a public/non-profit partnership that can prosper and succeed in achieving our ambitious goals.
