How are the Trees Doing?

Trees for Seattle cares about the survival and the health of the trees planted through Trees for Neighborhoods. That is why beginning in 2015, we began surveying all the street trees planted through the program in the last couple of years to better understand survival, health, and the tree care practices of the adjacent residents.

What we found was encouraging! Around 90% of our trees are surviving. We also found that the majority of trees were receiving appropriate care, including weekly watering and a nice ring of mulch around the base. Our field crew left a report card at each home to give the resident some postive encouragement and tree care advice.
