In Cheasty Greenspace, and other urban forests around Seattle, the rainy season is the time when volunteers can make big differences in the life of our forests by planting new trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that will grow into the forests of the future.

We do this with the help and expertise of Green Seattle Partnership, which collects data on how well our plants survive and thrive into the future using color-coded tags.  If you ever find tape like this hanging in one of our urban forests, please be sure to leave it be.  It’s displaying valuable information future surveyors.
