Squad worked beneath the large luxurious big leaf maples that populate the Cheasty Greenspace. Fortunately dedicated Forest Stewards, supported by the Green Seattle Partnership have planted many new trees to ensure that as the near-monoculture of mature maples decay and fall apart, there are new and various native trees to replace them.
Towards that effort, we pulled noxious ivy / Hedera helix down in a ravine. Sadly there were numerous dead ‘adolescent’ cedars nearby–probably killed by even more dry than our usual very dry summers.
Note that this wonderful park is has a lantern walk coming up in that forest on November 3rd, come enjoy some light, community art and history-storytelling in the woods.
