Spruce Elementary students, with help from the construction contractors on the Spruce building project, BNBuilders, added a new tree to the school site on Earth Day, April 22.
BNBuilders and Specialized Landscaping donated an 11-foot-tall Pyramid Limber Pine tree. Eight 5th grade students were nominated by their teachers to assist with digging the hole, watering and planting the tree. They also received shirts, beanies, hard hats, safety glasses and gloves to use and keep. All 6th grade students received beanies.
The new tree is located on the hillside next to the school’s construction project. Spruce Elementary is located at 17405 Spruce Way, Lynnwood.
