Ready, Set, Go Plant Trees

The supplies are all ready and I’m prepared for the big push – five plantings in eight days. Monday starts with St Aloysis at 10:45. Those students have read lots and lots of books and voted for a yellowwood to be planted in the strip in front of their school on Mission Ave. Then on Tuesday I’ll be at Audubon Park at 10:00 to say thank you with a tree to Jim Flynn who planted thousands of white pines to bring back the forests of Idaho 35 years after The Big Burn. He deserves his own tree in place where he can see it every day. Thursday is a big day because the 100th tree in the Susie Forest in the city of Spokane will be planted to celebrate 100 years of women’s suffrage in the state. The League of Women Voters will be at the corner of Washington and Spokane Falls Blvd at 11:00 to help the planting party. Friday we plant the first tree in the second 100 in the Susie Forest in Spokane by the first tree in the first 100. It will be planted by the tupelo in front of Witter Pool at 9:00 a.m. An then on Monday morning we travel to Cannon Hill Park at 11:00 to help Senator Lisa Brown plant the tree that she donated after Susie’s death. They worked together to help get the Cooper Jones bill passed through the state legislature. What a week! Tree-grams and cookies and trees!
