An urban tree canopy is made up of the leaves, branches, and stems of our trees that obscure the view of the ground from above. This system of trees reduces air pollution, lowers the City’s temperature, and provides beauty and wildlife habitat in our neighborhoods. The evening will be moderated by Seattle Times writer Lynda Mapes and features a panel including Woody Wheeler (Conservation Catalyst), Maria Batayola (Beacon Hill Council), June Bluespruce, and David Moehring (UW - Bothell) will give the current state of Seattle’s tree canopy and the goals for canopy coverage. You’ll also find out how your voice can make a difference in the growth and protection of this critical resource.
