The City of Kirkland was awarded another $10,000 Community Forestry Assistance grant from Washington State Department of Natural Resources.

The grant will fund drafting Kirkland’s Urban Forest Strategic Management Plan, a city-wide project involving the Planning, Parks and Community Services, and Public Works departments. The project will provide a guide for decision-makers to sustainably manage Kirkland’s urban forest, a community asset that contributes to the health, safety, and pleasant environment for its residents.
