So they’re basically a perfect fit!” To start his fund raising, Zachary talked to the Fall City PTSA, which gave special support to the project. They provided the labor, and not just any labor, “we got the high school wrestling team!” Zachary said.

Just like a seed, Zachary Cunningham’s tree project started out small. A third grader at Fall City Elementary School, Zachary at first just wanted to read about trees, but then he had an idea to plant them on the school grounds, too. “As you can see, the other trees got cut down,” he says, pointing out the large cedar stumps on his rough map of the school grounds. “So my plan was to replace the other trees with newer trees.” He talked to school librarian Meg Handy and his reading buddy, Anne Loring, about it, and they encouraged him. Zachary drew a map of his project site, and built a clay diorama of his idea. “Then I went to talk to Mr. S about it,” says Zachary. Principal Dan Schlotfeldt approved the project.

The new trees are doing well, says Zachary, and he’s got the plan to pay for them, with the help of Handy, and Weyerhauser Corporation, which donated 600 pine seedlings to the school. “People make a dollar of a donation, and then they get a seedling to plant,” Zachary said. “I’m getting three of them!” For now, he will put his small seedlings in a shared pot, but he knows they won’t stay small for long. Just like his ideas.
