County Seeks Large, Downed Trees

Citizens with large, downed trees (roots attached) on their property may consider donating them to the Thurston County Road Department for a river bank restoration project.

The county needs Douglas fir or Western red cedar only. Trees must be a minimum of 24 inches in diameter, at least 20 feet in length with a root wad measuring four to five feet. The site must have easy

access for a low-boy tractor/trailer and loading equipment.

In return for the donation of qualified trees, the county will remove the tree and limbs and fill in the root hole. Due to volume of work, selected trees will be picked up over the next six to eight weeks, schedule permitting.

Contact Environmental Coordinator Jeanne Kinney at 754-3355, ext. 7845  or  Operations Engineer Mike Clark at 709-3016 or at clarkmc@co.thurston.wa.us

If emailing, please write "large tree donation" in the subject line.
