Free street trees will be available this spring from Keep Eureka Beautiful, with tree plantings now being planned. The plantings are part of the organization’s Tree-Lined Streets Campaign.
“Trees, poles and planting materials will be available at no cost and volunteers will help with the planting.” according to Michele McKeegan, a Keep Eureka Beautiful founder. “If needed, the only charge will be $75 to partially underwrite the cost of cutting sidewalk holes.”
Eurekans who want a tree may email us for more information or to be scheduled for a tree(s) planting. “The sooner the better,” said McKeegan, “if residents want to get their trees this spring.”
