Seattle’s Trees: Our Legacy and our Treasure

Steve Zemke will discuss the need to update and strengthen the City’s tree ordinance. With all the changes and the building going on in our area, our trees must be protected and replaced when one is removed. Seattle is currently in the process of updating its Tree Protection Ordinance and is seeking public input.

Steve is the Chair of the Coalition for a Stronger Tree Ordinance, works with Neighborhood Tree Keepers and is Vice-Chair of the Seattle Urban Forestry Commission.

Bring along your lunch or snack and join in on the conversation. All are welcome.

The Brig is located at 6344 NE 74th St (Bldg 460) in Magnuson Park. It is just off Sand Point Way, the third turn to the left after you enter by the guard house–there is a sign that points in its direction. There is a large free parking lot at the north side of the building and you can enter the building from there. Signs are posted by the Garden Room.

This year the Forum is sponsored jointly by UUC and Seattle Parks and Recreation.
