Seattle’s tree cover has shrunk from 40 percent of the city’s land area in 1972 to just 18 percent today, a decline that threatens nature’s ability to help manage storm water, reduce erosion, absorb climate-disrupting gases and clean the air. You can make a difference! There are many species that fit into our urban landscape, especially in an area like West Seattle which values both trees and views.
