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.
