A Grand Old Sentinel was at Risk in Seattle's Greenwood Neighborhood.
This is the story of what happened...
A truly Exceptional, Western Red Cedar was endangered in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood.
We, a group of neighbors, created this site as a place to share information about the value of trees in our urban neighborhoods, raise awareness of City codes that put Exceptional Trees at risk, and give our fellow citizens a way to follow and support our campaign.
After over 10 months of perseverance against staggering odds, we reached a settlement with Andy Duffus which included a covenant that will prevent removal of this tree, in perpetuity, and a requirement that he build to a footprint that preserves the tree.

Huge thanks to all who supported this campaign!
