A good year for trees

For the 28th year, the Washington Tree Committee gave away free sapling trees to  people from Washington as part of the annual Tree Giveaway Saturday. More trees were given this year as the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer is requiring many people to remove existing trees. Arborist Andy Dahl, right, was on hand to answer questions from people regarding the planting and care of the trees. The tree committee hopes to promote diversity of trees and tries to select varieties that are not common in the area.
