Green Lake/Wallingford Tree Ambassadors will plan tree walks, tree plantings, and tree care events to help Seattle residents in these neighborhoods ensure the long term health of the urban forest. Learn about the selection and care of urban trees.
The Green Lake Wallingford Tree Ambassadors have completed their first tree walk map. Visit Seattle's Green Lake Park and learn to identify the trees as you walk around the lake.
