Trees planted around Arnada

The Columbian

ARNADA — The city of Vancouver Urban Forestry Group and volunteers from the Arnada neighborhood teamed up to plant street trees in the Arnada neighborhood on Nov. 14. Ken Williams, leader of the project, conducted an inventory of the area and identified areas where street trees were lacking. He contacted residents to see if they were interested in having one or more trees planted in exchange for a commitment to take care of them. As a result, 19 trees from seven species were planted by four crews at six homes. “We were pleased to be able to work with Ken and the other volunteers on this project. Planting these trees helps Vancouver further its tree canopy coverage goal,” Jessica George of Urban Forestry said in a news release. The neighborhood association provided $2,000 for the effort. “These trees will add beauty and shade to the Arnada Neighborhood,” Williams said.
