Capitol Campus Tree Plantings
For its #CentennialChallenge, the Washington State Departments of Enterprise Services (DES) and Natural Resources (DNR) are partnering to plant 100 new trees on the state’s Capitol Campus between October 2019 and April 2020. The Washington DNR will purchase many of the trees, and DES will plant and maintain them.
“The new trees that will be planted not only add beauty to the Capitol Campus, they also clean the air and water, increase biodiversity, and improve physical and mental health,” said Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz. “When we plant more trees in our cities, we create cities that are healthier, cooler, and better places to live.”
