Gathering on Tuesday, Feb.26, kicks off with an evening
focused on “Talking about Trees.”
In 2017, the city performed a Tree Canopy Assessment,
using aerial photography to survey Bellevue’s trees.
The assessment measured both public and private
property, documenting forests in parks, trees in the
right-of-way, and the trees on residential land. Overall,

Bellevue’s tree canopy covers 37% of the city’s land
area, with 65% of all trees located on residential land.
The Tree Canopy Assessment also quantified some of
the benefits this canopy provides. For a more detailed
look at the state of Bellevue’s tree canopy and more on
the benefits it provides, find the full assessment online
at BellevueWA.gov/trees.
The City Council adopted a goal of 40% tree canopy
cover. To obtain this vision, the community will play a
vital role. Through maintenance, restoration, volunteer
tree planting, community partnerships and efforts
of everyday residents, Bellevue is working towards
achieving this goal. We also need your help!
“Talking About Trees” is the latest topic of the
Neighborhood Leadership Gathering, an evening event
where people can gather to discuss pressing local
issues. At this event, a staff panel will share more about
Bellevue’s Tree canopy assessment and overall trends,
trees in our parks and development. Following these
short talks, there will be a facilitated discussion of tree related issues. Residents will be asked for their ideas
on how the city can partner with the community to
preserve and grow Bellevue’s urban tree canopy.
Neighborhood Leadership Gatherings are open to
all who are invested in the quality and health of their
neighborhoods. Dessert and coffee will be served. RSVP is
appreciated to neighborhoodoutreach@BellevueWA.gov.  

See you there!
