Accepting Comments on Urban Forest Management Plan

The Urban Forest Management Plan is currently being updated and we are accepting public comment until October 1, 2012. View/download the the draft plan here.

In order to maximize the benfits of trees within Seattle, the City has engaged in an effort led by the Urban Forest Interdepartmental Team to update city-wide policies and regulations. This work has resulted not only in the update to the Urban Forest Management Plan but also in the update of the Street Tree Ordinance (led by the Seattle Department of Transportation) and an update of tree regulations governing private property (led by the Department of Planning and Development).
