Orchard Street Ravine Vegetation Management Plan
Orchard St. Ravine is a 2.2 acre site comprised of two Parks owned parcels of land separated by an unimproved street right-of-way (38th Ave SW), with another unimproved right-of-way (SW Orchard St.) bordering the northeast side of the site also included in the greenspace. The majority of the woodland site contains a madrone-Douglas fir forest situated on west and southwest facing slopes, while the remainder of the site is fairly flat and open with dense thickets of blackberry. The forest type found at Orchard St. is one that is fairly scarce in Seattle data reveals that only 52 acres out of 2700 acres of Seattles urban forest in Parks ownership that was surveyed contains the conifer-madrone forest that is present at the Orchard St. site. As is seen throughout the city, the woods exhibit signs of decline and invasion by non-native species.
