100 new trees coming to state's Capitol Campus
The departments of Enterprise Services (DES) and Natural Resources (DNR) are partnering to plant 100 new trees on the Capitol Campus between October 2019 and April 2020. DNR will purchase many of the trees, and DES will plant and maintain them. The partnership dovetails with the 100-themed Centennial Challenge issued by the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) in recognition of the organization's 100th anniversary.
The state agencies will kick off tree planting efforts at an Oct. 18 event that celebrates Urban and Community Forestry Month. People are invited to join the event at noon, at the corner of Capitol Way and Sid Snyder Ave. S.W.
