Our Crown Hill: Question of the Month (Question 4)

What are your favorite trees in the neighborhood?

August 1st - August 31st, 2009 (extended indefinitely)

This is a special edition of the Our Crown Hill Feature. We want to know about your favorite trees in the neighborhood.

Crown Hill Neighborhood Association is embarking on a special project to catalog and recognize the environmental, historical, and cultural significance of our neighborhood's trees. As neighbors you can help by sharing your stories about your favorite trees in Crown Hill, whether they are trees you pass by on the street or ones in your own yard. Take a moment to ask your neighbors about their favorite trees too, especially those who have lived in CH a long time or may not have access to the internet!

At the end of the project, the urban tree expert helping with the project will lead a guided tour of our 'special' Crown Hill trees. A self-guided tour and the stories we collect will be available for everyone to enjoy on the Crown Hill Neighbors Website. The City is very supportive of this idea, and they want to use our project as a pilot for the rest of Seattle's neighborhoods. You are welcome to provide information on more than one tree or group of trees. Please note that the trees in Carkeek Park are outside the area for this project.

To help make it a success please provide the following information for each tree or group of trees (feel free to submit multiple responses).

Here is how it works:

Question #4:
Describe your favorite tree or group of trees (species if you know it ... spruce, or maple, or pine or broadleaf ... other identifying information or characteristics ... tall or ~30 feet tall). Provide the location (at 9999 12th Ave NW or along 15th Ave NW at the north end of Swanson's).
Favorite Tree:*

You may also provide optional contact information, such as name, phone number, or e-mail, so we can get back to you for more information (for instance if we can not locate the tree or we have other questions). We will not use the contact information beyond this study and we will not publish this in the summary on our website.
