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! This past summer, our field crew surveyed all 428 street trees planted in 2014 and 2015 and found that 94% were alive. We also found that the majority of trees were receiving great 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.
