In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Trees for Seattle launches our new Tree Walk mobile app! Now you can explore Seattle’s urban forest from the safety of your living room or while on your own neighborhood stroll. This is an opportunity to learn more about the trees that make Seattle’s urban forest both unique and important with our self-guided, easy to use, mobile app. Whether you’re a budding botanist or simply interested in how Seattle’s trees contribute to a safer, healthier, more vibrant city, you’ll find an engaging Tree Walk to explore at your own convenience.
For many years, dedicated volunteers from our Tree Ambassadors program have shared their extensive knowledge by creating and leading tours of the valuable and notable trees in neighborhoods across Seattle. These informative and engaging tours are the foundation of Seattle Tree Walks. Users can choose from over 15 different routes, with more options to come over the next several months. In addition to gaining some basic tree identification skills, you can explore the deep historical and cultural connections between trees and people, understand how trees are impacted by climate change, and much more.
Trees for Seattle is the umbrella program for all of the City of Seattle's urban forestry efforts. Our commitment is to ensure that Seattle's urban forest is healthy, vital, and growing.
