The City of Spokane’s Neighborhood Tree Program is giving away 500 free trees to help Spokane residents lower their energy costs, filter air and water pollutants, reduce stormwater runoff, and green-up your neighborhood.

Those seeking trees can choose from a variety of species, including Chinese fringetree, Japanese snowbell, paperbark maple, scarlet oak, sweetgum and American Hornbeam.

The trees will be between one and three feet tall and will be shipped directly to your house, ready for planting, all at no charge.

Trees must be planted within private property boundaries, not on any City of Spokane public property, street right-of-way or parking strip.

Reserve your free tree at www.arborday.org/spokane.
