Native trees are critical to the health of the Pacific Northwest. Trees improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gases, shade creeks and streams cooling water for threatened salmon, reduce erosion and filter pollutants, improving water quality, and providing important wildlife habitat.
Since 2008, Carter Subaru has planted over 140,000 native trees and shrubs in the Greenway. Volunteers have been critical to ensuring the success of our Carbon Neutral program.
As part of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and in partnership with the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust, we provide the trees and they provide the volunteers. That's where you come in. Join us out in the Greenway in the fall and winter to plant these critical native trees and shrubs that help improve the ecological health of wonderful parks, natural spaces and river banks. Tree planting happens after volunteers have worked hard throughout the spring and summer to remove invasive species in specific areas.
Greenway Trust volunteer events are excellent for individuals, families, groups, and work teams. No experience required and they are a lot of fun!
A new information kiosk welcoming visitors to Lake Sammamish State Park and providing information on how trees are the cornerstone of the eco system was unveiled on October 22, 2016.
