Trees for Salmon

Trees for Salmon

Swansons has partnered with the Green Seattle Partnership to help reforest neighborhood parks. Conifer trees and other native vegetation benefit salmon streams by reducing surface water runoff, lowering water temperature, and providing food and habitat for other beneficial critters.

Here are 4 ways you can contribute:

Swansons Nursery provides native plants for salmon restoration in Seattle Parks

1. Purchase an evergreen tree labeled“This is a Living Christmas Tree" and plant it in your yard after the holidays. In return, Swansons will donate a native plant to be planted at a restoration site by volunteers.

2. Purchase an evergeen tree at Swansons labeled “You Can Donate This Tree." Enjoy your living tree for Christmas, then return your tree to Swansons after the holidays and it will be added to the restoration effort. Pick up a Living Christmas Tree Care handout at Swansons to ensure your tree remains healthy enough to plant.
