TreePAC is a Political Action Committee
TreePAC’s primary mission is working to increase protection for trees and urban forests. Our current focus is on updating Seattle’s Tree Ordinance. We are urging the Mayor and the Seattle City Council to update Seattle’s Tree Protection Ordinance adopting the provisions in the Seattle Urban Forestry Commission’s draft Tree and Urban Forest Protection Ordinance.
We are part of a broader effort working with other groups both locally and statewide to increase public support and policies to protect our trees and urban forests. In the 2021 Washington State Legislative session we spearheaded citizen support for the successful passage of E2SHB 1216 to increase protections for urban and community forests.
In 2022 we supported HB 1099 to add climate resiliency to the Growth Management Act and supported HB 1981 to protect trees when adding more housing density
