Trees for Rail
is a collaboration between Sound Transit, the City of Shoreline, and King Conservation District (KCD) to re-green the Lynnwood Link light rail corridor with native trees and shrubs as it passes through the City of Shoreline.

The program offers free native trees and plants for qualifying City of Shoreline residents. KCD will offer free consultation and installation of up to 2 trees, 4 shrubs, and 8 groundcovers in your backyard.

*This program is currently set to do plantings through winter 2022-23 and until project funds are depleted.

Who Qualifies?

The qualifying list of properties has expanded since it was first offered. 

The updated list includes almost 2,400 properties in the Echo Lake, Ballinger, Meridian Park, North City, Parkwood, and Ridgecrest neighborhoods.
