After more than a decade, Seattle passes new rules to protect more city trees
Seattle is known as the Emerald City, but over the past couple decades it’s been losing a lot of what makes it green.

To protect more trees from development, many urban forest advocates have spent years asking for an update to rules for removing and replacing trees in Seattle.

But as the clock ticked down on the regular session, the votes weren’t there. The State House failed to pass the bill, which threw the future of the state’s drug possession law into question – and prompted a number of cities and counties to start passing their own patchwork of regulations.
