On September 22, 2016 the Lake Forest Park City Council passed Ordinance 1142, establishing a Tree Board.

The City is now seeking well-qualified volunteers to join the Board for a minimum of one three-year term. 

Who Can Join?
  • Lake Forest Park Residents
  • Lake Forest Park Property Owners
  • Non-residents / property owners who have experience in environmental sciences, forestry, horticulture, arboriculture, landscaping, landscape architecture, urban planning, or urban design
What does a Tree Board Do?

The Tree Board has three primary responsibilities:
  • Provide outreach and education to the community on tree-related issues
  • Organize and facilitate the City's tree planting events and other public events involving trees
  • Provide advice to City Council on policy and regulatory issues involving trees
How Can I find Out More?

The City will hold an informational session for prospective Tree Board members on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 7pm at Lake Forest Park City Hall. City staff will explain in detail the duties and responsibilities of Board members and answer questions from the public.

After this session, the City will begin accepting applications for tree board members. While you do not need to attend the session to apply, attendance at this session fulfills the first requirement for board membership, and is strongly encouraged.

Let them know you're coming!

RSVP by Friday, December 9th to let them know you're coming. RSVP is not required, but strongly encouraged to help with logistical planning for the meeting.
