Tree Care Pamphlets
These pamphlets were created to share information on tree care with the community in multiple languages (Spanish, Hindi, Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, and English). Puget Sound residents can help expand our urban forest by planting trees in their own yards and in planting strips as appropriate. Proper planting technique and follow-up care are essential to making sure trees thrive in our cities!
