Seattle Needs Trees
Do you agree that the recently passed Tree Ordinance 126821 has some holes to be filled? Holes like not being in compliance with the city’s comprehensive plan, and forgetting to include tree protection during property development.
There is a city-wide movement to amend the legislation to bring it into compliance with the City’s own 2035 Comprehensive Plan goals (30% coverage by 2037), as well as the state Growth Management Act.
To learn more about this movement, go to: www.seattleneedstrees.com
One can also get a better idea of the benefits of amending the Tree Ordinance from this Seattle Times article by Naomi Ishisaka, “Yes, Seattle, we can have both housing and trees.”
