Volunteers remove weeds, replant trees in Issaquah
The city of Issaquah partnered with Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust and State Parks to celebrate a big milestone, 25 years as a Tree City USA.
Volunteers planted native trees, removed invasive weeds and built a new connector trail on Arbor Day.
The event took place at Sammamish Cove Park, a former dairy farm. The work area bordered Tibbetts Creek, a salmon bearing stream and boasts sweeping views of the Issaquah Alps. The area was previously overwhelmed by invasive weeds, but Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust volunteers and others have worked hard to remove the weeds and plant thousands of trees to re-establish healthy forests.
