If you are like many around the valley, you’ve got trees that took a beating in Thursday’s ice storm. Wondering if you can save your beloved trees? Come find out 6PM tomorrow, January 25th, at the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, 35018 SE Ridge Street. The class is free and you don’t have to be a YMCA member to attend. The City of Snoqulamie is hosting the 45-minute workshop that will teach homeowners how to assess tree damage and take the corrective steps to salvage limbs that aren’t too badly damaged.
Got lots of tree debris laying in your yard? You can drop off woody tree limbs at the corner of Highway 202 and Snoqualmie Parkway. Just look for the huge pile of Christmas trees and you know you are in the right spot. The storm debris drop-off is open 9AM – 3PM on January 28th & 29th and again on February 4th and 5th. If your tree branches are less than 4″ in diameter they can also go in your yard waste container.
Over 600 city trees are in need of some type of repair or removal from last week’s storm. Snoqualmie Parks Department is aware and is assessing. Their first priority is to remove any trees or limbs that block car or pedestrian traffic or pose a safety hazard. You can reach the parks department at 425-831-5784.
