‘Tis the season: SDOT planting trees in West Seattle

SDOT says it’s just started another round of tree-planting in West Seattle – almost 300 trees in Gatewood and near Fairmount Park, with the work to be done by May 1st. Its announcement says the trees “are all grown in Northwest nurseries.” They’ll be maintained by SDOT’s Urban Forestry division, with watering bags in place for the first two to three growing seasons. Some street-tree planting was done recently in The Junction; in addition to West Seattle, SDOT says its springtime planting is also focused on Rainier Beach, which is getting 150 new trees.

    I would rather see the money spent to fill the dangerous pot holes. Maybe if the city thought it was dangerous for bikes instead of cars they would do something.

    Whether you want the trees or not, they will be planted. The only maontaining the city will do is water them. It’s up to the homeowners to rake the leaves and flower blossoms. Oh and when the trees are large enough and the roots break up the sidewalk and someone trips and gets hurt – guess who is responsible – the homeowner. Our neighbors were sued last year.

    Max, I think the pot holes are a plot by the city to keep us from driving our cars.


Sorry, comment time is over.
