Shoreline City Councilmembers accepted a plaque commemorating the City of Shoreline’s designation as an official Tree City USA community at the April 22 Council meeting. Department of Natural Resources Tree City USA Representative Linden Lampman presented the plaque to the Council. Shoreline was designated as a Tree City USA last year. The Council also declared April 26, 2013 as a day to recognize Arbor Day in the City of Shoreline. Arbor Day is a day to reflect on the many benefits trees provide us and to plant a tree as a commemoration.

What a joke, the person responsible for getting the City of Shoreline certified as a National Wildlife Federation Habitat area is not re-appointed to the parks board and she promoted tree code. Not only that, but the city just approved a permit to cut down 30 mature conifers and approved a master use plan to cut down over 1,300 mature conifers on the Crista campus. Thankfully, in the case of Crista, the city has lost at the appeals court and the superior court.

The city also has allowed Innis Arden to cut down dozens of trees in the Innis Arden RESERVE.

There is no tree safe from cutting in Shoreline, but when the Town Center Sub-Area Plan passed, Councilmember Will Hall stated that trees in other areas would not be cut down as a result. Do you know what, Councilmember Hall? I don't give a rip about those other areas, I only care about what I live near and drive by every day, I want to see mature conifers.

The Innis Arden tree and trail rules need to be scrapped and all of Shoreline's tax paying citizens should be able to walk amongst unharmed trees along Innis Arden reserve trails. It is part of the city and we all pay for access with our taxes.
