Does Maple Leaf need more trees? (And how to get them)

June 14th, 2014 · 10 Comments

Seattle’s Trees for Neighborhoods program now has an online, interactive map showing the tree canopy across the city, as well as where new trees were planted between 2009 and 2013.

A thousand in 2013 alone!

So how come Maple Leaf is behind our neighbors in tree canopy? (More green means more trees.) Even PINEHURST is greener.

Help fix this inequality when the 2014 Trees for Neighborhoods application period opens in August.

Program participants receive:

Free trees (up to 4 per household): Each year we offer a variety of small, medium, and large trees appropriate under power lines, along the street, and in the yard.

Watering bags

Training on proper planting and care

Assistance applying for street tree planting permits

Ongoing care reminders and workshop opportunities, such as young tree pruning
