Although National Arbor Day is typically the last Friday in April each year, North Bend holds a fall observation of the holiday. For this year’s event, Saturday, Nov. 22, the city is planning a tree-planting day at the Tollgate Farm property. Historically a forest of giant conifer trees along the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, Tollgate Forest is now comprised of cottonwood, maple, alder, cascara, and cherry trees. The river serves as a wildlife corridor for elk, deer and other large animals, and the forest is home to a variety of wildlife, including pileated woodpeckers, wood ducks, river otters and muskrat. Native conifers are missing from the forest, and non-native plants such as English ivy and Himalayan blackberry are invading the forest.
