Join the “Stop the Chop” rally on Sunday, May 19, 2024 at 1pm at Ronald Bog Park to call attention to the City's plans to remove trees along N 175th between Stone Way N and I-5 for the N 175th Corridor Project.

Volunteers from Save Shoreline Trees have tied an orange ribbon on many of the 274 trees along N 175th identified in the December 2022 draft arborist report to be removed.

The public is invited to join the "Stop the Chop" rally, and bring your own sign, or “write a note to a tree” at this event.

Save Shoreline Trees agrees safety for all is a top priority.

However, for the sake of climate resilience and emergency, we ask the Council to reconsider the design for N 175th Corridor Project. 

This project is scheduled to be discussed by Council on June 3, 2024.

Volunteers with Tree Action Seattle will host a “write a note to a tree” table on Sunday.

Ronald Bog Park is located at 2301 N 175th St, just east of Meridian Ave N.

It's stunning for this group to pay lip service to safety yet provide zero detail at all on how to make this dangerous street safer. This is the same street that was just discussed on !!

slow down traffic. close the school, and move the students to a different school. enforce traffic laws. if you are not following driving rules you are the problem. there is no engineering in the world that will make a road "safe" if there is no social agreement to follow the law. If you think it's okay to drive 5 over the limit you are part of the problem.

Fantastic street protest. Citizen action at it's best!
