Help Us Achieve Our Tree Canopy Goals

In Bellevue, trees are an important part of what makes our us a “city in a park.” To keep our city green as our city grows, we encourage preserving mature trees and planting new trees. In addition to showing our city’s character, trees provide essential, measurable services to our community including cleaner air, stormwater management, summer cooling, reductions in crime, health benefits (like better mental and cardiovascular health), and more.

As we implement natural systems goals (40% canopy citywide) from our updated Environmental Stewardship Plan, we need your help. You are the experts in your neighborhood. Is there a street that would especially benefit from street trees in your neighborhood? Or maybe a school or park that needs more trees? Or maybe there is a tree with special meaning in your community? Are you interested in planting trees?

To better plant and preserve, we need your help!

Use the tools below to share with us:

  • Photos of trees you have planted
  • Locations to plant a tree
  • Your thoughts about the current state of Bellevue's trees
