Why don’t you provide shrubs / understory plants?
The focus of the Puyallup NeighborWoods program is to build tree canopy cover in residential areas, particularly in watershed areas that have water quality problems, like the Clarks Creek and Puyallup River contributing basins. Shrubs and understory plants, while important, do not achieve that goal and we do not have any funding to provide them. That does not mean that you should not plant them on your own where appropriate.
