Need a Christmas tree? Fir, spruce, cedar for rent

EVERETT -- It's no longer just artificial or cut Christmas trees.
People who want a holiday tree can now also rent a live one.
Once Christmas is finished, the tree is returned and then planted in the spring next to a stream.
Just don't forget to take the tinsel off.
The Adopt A Stream Foundation is offering the trees for rent today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the south end of Snohomish County's McCollum Park, 600 128th Street SE.
The foundation is offering a selection of 200 Sitka spruce, Western red cedar and Douglas firs.
The potted Christmas trees are in the 3- to 5-foot range and rent for $25 to $35 dollars.
"Bring your tree back to us after the New Year and we will plant it next to a salmon stream in the spring," said ecologist Loren Brokaw.
The trees will provide shade that keeps local streams cool for salmon.
In addition to live trees, visitors may pick up last minute gifts of nature art, animal puppets, environmental education materials for kids and adults and stocking stuffers from the Northwest Stream Center Nature Store.
The foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching people how to become stewards of their watersheds.
For more information, call 425-316-8592.
