Trees and Landscaping Program

What We Do

  • Manage street trees along streets throughout the City of Seattle.
  • Support property owner requests for permit approval to plant, prune or remove street trees.
  • Provide design & construction direction for private and public development projects.
  • Oversee design and construction of SDOT Major Projects and Capital Improvement Projects.
  • Provide public information through outreach and education.

By administering, maintaining, protecting, and expanding Seattle’s urban landscape in the street right-of-way, we maximize economic, environmental, safety and aesthetic benefits for the public.
