People can volunteer for upcoming Seattle Forest Week projects

Harrison Ridge Greenbelt organizers in Madison Valley will have volunteer events throughout the Seattle Forest Week, Nov. 6 through Seattle Arbor Day, Nov. 13. Projects that week will continue throughout the month of November, as volunteers plant more than 600 trees and shrubs, provided by the Green Seattle Partnership.

Volunteers will haul woodchips, dig holes, move plants to various areas of the greenbelt and, in dry areas, water the new plants.

Volunteers of all ages can help increase the population of native trees and shrubs necessary for maintaining the health of this part of the Pacific Northwest ecosystem during Seattle Forest Week.
