Tree Ambassadors build community and create investment in public green space.
The Tree Ambassador program empowers residents to become stewards of the urban forest and serve as resources for their local community. Tree Ambassadors are trained in the basics of urban forestry and community organizing. Tree Ambassadors work to develop neighborhood projects such as Tree Walks, invasive species removal workdays, street tree mulching and care events, and more.

Ballard Tree Care Party
Wed, June 19
5:30 – 8:30 pm
Meet at Ballard Corners Park, 17th Ave NW and NW 62nd St
Street trees provide so much to us – let’s love them back by getting rid of the weeds choking their trunks and giving them a nice new layer of mulch. There are almost 200 trees in the blocks around Ballard Corners park that need our help to thrive this summer. Tools and refreshments will be provided, but be sure to wear clothes that can get dirty and closed-toe shoes.

Tree Ambassador is a collaboration between the City of Seattle and Forterra. Program work is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry program.
