Coalition for a Stronger Tree Ordinance

Coalition for a Stronger Tree Ordinance

The following organizations have endorsed the campaign for a stronger Seattle Tree Protection Ordinance. They support a permit system to remove any tree 6 inches diameter and larger on both private and public land and on developed land and land undergoing development. They support requiring equivalently sized trees be replanted either on site or pay a mitigation fee to cover the cost of the city replanting the tree and maintaining it. The goal is not just a no net loss of canopy but increasing Seattle’s tree canopy over time.

  1. neighbors to my daughter 4556 52nd Laurelhurst planning a huge tree removal which stabilizes the slope and provides habitat

    unclear if tree is unsafe for neighborhood.

    for a lover of natural habitat i fear this tree will be removed unnecessarily
