Check Out Audubon Society's New Interactive Seattle Tree Map

STM Banner


Seattle Audubon Society has launched a new interactive on-line street map comprised of a shared inventory by users of the inventory of Seattle's trees.
The information says:
Curious about how many Douglas Firs are in your neighborhood? Or the number of trees in the city with a trunk diameter greater than twenty-four inches? Search functions allow you to find the exact trees you're looking for, or filter results based on tree height, date of planting, plot type, tree health, and more.
Users can edit data to account for missing or outdated information, upload photos to tree profiles, "favorite" the trees they like, set alerts (this tree needs to be watered!), and add comments. Users can contribute to urban forest monitoring and conservation through a shared inventory of Seattle's trees.

The Seattle Tree Map is part of Canopy Connections, a project by Seattle Audubon to "document, map, and enhance Seattle’s urban forest habitat for birds and nature"
