West Seattle scene: ‘Patchwork quilt’ on Arroyos slope

Thanks to Diane Ferrero in The Arroyos for sharing the photos of what appears to be a new start of sorts on part of the slope in the area (map). Diane wrote, “Looks like a patchwork quilt in the Arroyos. A crew came and worked for a couple of days removing all the noxious weeds and planting native plants. You can see each little plant is surrounded by a coffee-bean bag for protection. We are pretty sure that the city is trying to protect the Madrona trees in the Arroyos.”

More than seven acres of property in the area is city-owned. The madrona trees there and nearby are noted in this story we found in the Seattle Times (WSB partner) archives

    So exciting to see restoration happening here! Very unique groves of Madrone trees are in this area, glad the city is taking steps to preserve this forest and ensure erosion control/prevent property damage by investing in environmental restoration.

Sorry, comment time is over.
