City Of Trees Subtitles English
Bellevue is proud to be a "City in a park," with 2,800 acres of parks and open space. The forests in our parks help keep our waters healthy and provide homes for wildlife. It's the trees in our neighborhoods, though, that make this city truly special. Two-thirds of all trees in Bellevue are on residential land.
City of Trees subtitles English
The City of Bellevue is committed to stewarding the 2,500 acres of forest, playfields, and community gardens that make up our park system, along with the 8,000 acres of tree canopy in the city.A 2017 assessment found that 37% of the City is covered by tree canopy. In the updated Comprehensive Plan, the City set a target of 40% tree canopy cover, as recommended by leading national experts American Forests. By achieving this goal, we can expand on the health and economic benefits that trees provide.
We have been analyzing our tree canopy using aerial imaging every 5-10 years since 1986. Up-to-date data on tree canopy cover and impervious surfaces allow the city to make informed decisions about tree planting and preservation, stormwater management, land use and the benefits trees provide.
Bellevue's abundance of trees on our streets not only enhance the experience for people walking, biking, and driving through the city, they also provide significant environmental benefits. Bellevue has a comprehensive inventory of its street trees on urban boulevards, which you can check out here:
Bellevue remains committed to maintaining its "city in a park" character. However, steady development over the last 30 years has resulted in a loss of trees. In 1986, the tree canopy was estimated at 45 percent and by the year 2007, it had declined to 36 percent.
The project involves the estimated removal of 295 trees on city-owned property. PSE will plant new trees and install landscaping to restore the impacted areas along the route and mitigate for any impacts to critical areas and/or critical area buffers. The exact number of trees to be replaced is to be determined through clearing and grading and right of way use permits issued by the city.
Per conditional use permit requirements, PSE will contribute $856,740 to the city to compensate for the value of the city-owned trees to be removed. This money will be placed in a fund to help pay for landscape restoration and mitigation materials, including plants and irrigation, required for the project.
Starlings are sociable birds - they congregate in their thousands and fly to suitable roosts. When large numbers are roosting in woods the trees can become so saturated with the birds' droppings that they may die. In the winter the town or city offers roosts which may be one or two degrees warmer than the country roosts and when that extra warmth may mean the difference between survival or death, it is obvious why so many thousands of roosting birds choose the city to spend the cold hours of the night. This causes problems to man; the accumulated droppings of many thousands of roosting birds over a number of weeks can constitute a serious health hazard. A satisfactory method of repelling the birds has yet to be found - even firing guns to frighten them away does not seem to work!
