TreePAC is making change happen

“Are you tired of pleading, asking, arguing and proving that trees have public value? Join TreePAC and make change happen. Together we will be a lobby as powerful as the sports lobby.”       Cass Turnbull, TreePAC founder.

Do you feel like this sometimes?

Together we can save more trees.

Join TreePAC.

MISSION STATEMENT – The TreePAC mission is to influence the government to protect, maintain, and increase the urban forest.

SELF- EVIDENT TRUTH – The Urban Forest is essential.

Trees save money through their green infrastructure services.
They reduce stormwater run off, mudslides, urban flooding, soil erosion, and reduce energy costs by moderating the local climate.

Trees are good for the environment:
they increase bio-diversity, protect habitat, pollinators, and wildlife. They provide for a cleaner Puget Sound, and they mitigate the causes and effects of global climate change.

Trees improve community and health
—they create walkable/bike-able streets, stewardship and recreational opportunities; reduce noise pollution; improve property values and community pride. Trees provide beauty and solace for all.


TreePAC contributes to candidates, lobby policymakers, and raise awareness of Urban Forestry issues. We do so by attending meetings and hearings, providing a semi-monthly newsletter on current issues and news, sending emails, holding protests and media events, and by adopting tree preservation projects. Always we will fight for better laws, funding, and enforcement.


In order to succeed – and we can with your help and the help of  others–we need everybody who cares about trees to join.
