Trees planted in Hillyard


The Abor Day tree give-away in Hillyard was a success. About 1,200 trees were given away during the week of Arbor Day - 400 went to North East Youth Center alone. The remaining trees will be planted in and around Hillyard for everyone to enjoy.

Thousands of trees…

Hillyard's participation in Arbor Day this week is going somewhat okay - but there are more than 1,000 trees left. Some are White Pine, some are Ponderosa Pine and some are Spruce.
These trees need homes - stop by a participating store and pick one up.

Tree give-away begins today

In celebration of Arbor Day, the Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee is giving away a ton of trees. The merchants already have 950 trees ready to give away, and there are 500 more coming… Among them are 200 larger trees specifically designated to children. The trees are given away on a first come first served business. Participating businesses have tree posters in their windows.

Hillyard is extra green on Arbor Day

To celebrate Arbor Day, the Historic Hillyard Merchants Committee is giving away seedling trees between April 13 and April 23. Look for a tree in the windows of participating businesses and stop in for a tree and a little shopping.

The Merchants Committee is putting together a tree planting program in connection with Arbor Day (April 29). Young trees - mostly evergreens it sounds like - have been secured and the tree planting program will run begining on Earth Day (April 22).
Stay tuned for details.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
