On Friday, November 6, 2020 volunteers came together at North Bend City Hall, celebrating Arbor Day by planting 40 native Conifer trees.
Approximately 15 volunteers – including Mayor Rob McFarland, his wife Roberta and members of Boy Scout Troop 466 - rolled up their sleeves and planted those 40 new trees in an un-landscaped portion of City Hall property. To maintain Covid-19 safety measures, volunteers wore masks, stayed distanced and planted the trees individually, rather than in groups.
In the future these newly planted trees will help reforest this area City Hall property; contribute to the urban forest canopy; and provide local wildlife additional habitat in an area that might otherwise have been taken over by blackberry and Scotch Broom.
Thank you to all of our hardworking volunteers!
[The City of North Bend traditionally celebrates Arbor Day in the fall rather than the spring as it is an optimal time in the Pacific Northwest for planting, allowing trees the full winter and spring to establish before the next dry season sets in.]
