The annual Free Streamside Tree Program was designed as part of Salem's ongoing efforts to improve water quality in our waterways. Since the program's inception in 2003, a total of 2181 native plants have been provided for streamside habitat enhancement throughout the city.

The Free Tree Program has ended for this year. Thanks to an incredible response from Salem streamside residents, we were able to give away nearly 1,100 plants to 185 participants. Next season's program is scheduled to begin January 2009 with our annual mailing to streamside properties.

Our featured native plants for the 2008 season are highlighted below:

Western Redcedar Thuja plicata

Vine Maple Acer circinatum
