University of Washington Tree Walk

An urban forest provides multiple benefits to cities and their inhabitants.  The University of Washington campus is an excellent example that illustrates the many purposes served by a healthy urban forest. Explore the campus and discover a bit about the form and function of one of Seattle’s premier urban forest settings. This is a very special Tree Walk led by Dr. Gordon Bradley, Professor Emeritus of urban forestry and land use planning at the University of Washington's School of Environmental and Forest Sciences.
