Join Charlie as he takes a walk around the block and shows you some of the incredible trees growing in his SE Ballard neighborhood. These trees are a part of Seattle's SE Ballard Tree Walk, one of several volunteer-created tree walks in Seattle. Download the new Tree Walks app to explore a walk in your neighborhood: https://www.seattle.gov/trees/get-inv...

EDIT: The tree Charlie identifies as an Oregon white oak is actually an English oak (Quercus robur). English oak fall into the white oak group and they are easy to mistake for one another. Regardless of species, both oaks are wonderful at helping keep our cities cool!

Trees for Seattle, a program of the City of Seattle in partnership with Forterra, is dedicated to growing and maintaining healthy, awe-inspiring trees in Seattle. Trees build strong communities by:
-Making our streets friendlier places to walk and bike
-Soaking up rainwater to keep our streams, lakes, and Puget Sound clean
-Calming traffic, helping to avoid accidents
-Cleaning our air, making it easier to breathe
-And much more!

Seattle's urban forest depends on you! 2/3 of Seattle's trees are planted around homes and maintained by residents. Without those trees, Seattle would be a sad place. Working together, we can have an urban forest that is healthy and growing.

You can get involved in many ways:
-Go on a tree walk: we host regular tours of unique and beautiful trees in neighborhoods across Seattle. Self-guided versions are available on the website and with our new app.
-Become a Tree Ambassador: Our volunteers, aka Tree Ambasadors, lead Tree Walks with friends and neighbors and participate in fun events like Tree Stewardship work parties to keep trees healthy and thriving. You can commit for an hour or for a lifetime.
-Plant a Tree: Our Trees for Neighborhoods project supports Seattle Residents in planting trees around their homes by providing support, free trees, and workshops.
