Upcoming Events

We celebrate trees year round - join us! All events are free. Check back often for new events and opportunities or sign up for our email list to receive monthly updates.

Wedgwood Tree Walk
Saturday, June 1
9:30 - 11 am 
Dahl Playfield (7700 25th Ave NE) Meet in the parking lot along 25th Ave NE [map]
RSVP here or email TreeAmbassador@seattle.gov

Join us for a walk along Wedgwood’s western edge—from Dahl Playfield (formerly a natural peat bog) to the higher elevations, home to beautiful large conifers and deciduous trees. Wedgwood is well-known for its numerous mature evergreens, and on this walk, extremes in topography create a wide variety of habitats in which trees thrive. The walk starts and ends at Dahl Playfield—a great green place for all ages. Please note that this walk includes some light to moderately steep slopes.

Beacon Hill Street Tree Care Work Party
Saturday, June 8
12 pm - 3:30 pm
Meet at Maplewood Playfield [map]
RSVP Here or email treeambassador@seattle.gov

Want to make an impact on the landscape of a Seattle neighborhood for decades to come? Join us for a Saturday afternoon of caring for young street trees in the Beacon Hill neighborhood! These trees may be small and young now, but with some love and care, they will provide healthy canopy for Beacon Hill- which means shade, wildlife habitat, storm water benefits and more! We will be weeding and mulching around each three to help them grow big and strong!

Endolyne Tree Walk
Saturday, June 8
9:30 am - 12 pm
Meet at the Fauntleroy Creek overlook, at the corner of SW Director St. & Fauntleroy Way SW (Note: this is in the neighborhood above Fauntleroy Way ferry access arterial) [map]
RSVP here or email TreeAmbassador@seattle.gov

Endolyne is part of the Fauntleroy neighborhood in the southwest corner of West Seattle. Its name comes from being the last stop (‘end of the line’) on the streetcar line that once connected Fauntleroy to the bridge over the Duwamish River into downtown Seattle. Endolyne is noted for its incredible views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, and is graced with some of the tallest trees in West Seattle along with species rare across the entire city. Part of our walk will include the grounds of the former Colman family mansion where we will see the lasting product of their horticultural efforts.

E Prospect Street Shoreline Street End Work Party
Saturday, June 15
9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Meet at the corner of E Prospect St & 41st Ave E, adjacent to the Seattle Tennis Club
RSVP here or email TreeAmbassador@seattle.gov

This event is our second community effort (spearheaded by neighbors, the Madison park community and Friends of Street Ends) to restore a little-known public shore! We will be weeding and placing mulch to reclaim the space and free the trees from aggressive weeds. This is a great opportunity to make your mark on your neighborhood landscape while connecting with friends and neighbors!

West Seattle Tree Walk
Saturday, June 15
9:30 – 11 am
Meet at the north end of Roxhill Park (corner of 29th Ave SW & SW Barton St), across from Westwood Village Shopping Center [map]
RSVP here or email TreeAmbassador@seattle.gov

Tree Ambassadors team up with Seattle City Light Arboriculturist Heidi Narte to explore some great examples of neighborhood tree care, including how to spot minor issues before they become larger problems. Heidi will provide tips and expertise for choosing the right tree species for various landscape conditions with an emphasis on avoiding impacts to nearby powerlines. Enjoy learning about a diversity of urban trees that help keep our city healthy and beautiful. Please note - this walk is approximately one mile long and includes moderate to steep hills.

Freeway Park Tree Walk
Saturday, June 15
1:30 – 3pm
Meet at Seneca Plaza in Freeway Park, near the corner of 6th Ave & Seneca St [map]
RSVP here or email TreeAmbassador@seattle.gov

Trees for Seattle is partnering with the Freeway Park Association for this tour as part of the 2019 Freeway Park in Bloom celebration. Join our Tree Ambassadors as we explore the nation’s first public park built over a freeway, designed as an “oasis” where the urban landscape blends with the natural environment. Learn about the unique diversity of trees specifically chosen for this space to improve air quality, increase wildlife habitat, and provide a beautiful place to rest or recreate. Arrive early for live music, art displays, food, and more!
