Save Maple Leaf's giant tree?

July 27th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Over on our Maple Leaf Life Facebook page, Patrick LoCicero wants to save a giant tree in the neighborhood just a block off busy Fifth Avenue Northeast.

SAVE THE TREE!! There is a 200 to 300 year old Sequoia Tree on the corner of 105th and 8th Ave NE down from the NorthGate Community Center. It sits right on Thornton Creek and is a beauty. It would make a wonderful addition to the park!!! Go see for your self!!! The wooden fence that hid it is gone!!!

He’s talking about Thornton Creek Park No. 6, the park where the Maple Leaf beavers live. We’ve most recently written about trouble at an abandoned house there that the Seattle Parks and Recreation plans to tear down.

We’ll ask the the parks department what it plans for the tree. Which is so big it’s hard to take a photo of.
