Save the Trees (and the flags)!




The Friends of Lincoln Park (FLiP) would like to ask for some help from our community. The 300+ trees and plants species that were carefully planted and flagged on Green Seattle Day (Nov 3), will need continued monitoring and care over their first years of life in the park.

The flagging (colored flag tape) helps us locate the newly planted trees and plants for watering during summer droughts and track their survival. Removing the flagging often damages the plants and limits our ability to help them survive. Please help the trees and plants at Lincoln Park live long and healthy lives.

REMEMBER: If you see a flagged tree, please leave it be!

Planting Community - Green Seattle Day SUCCESS!

Can’t say enough good things about the amazing group of volunteers who came out today in the rain to help over 300 native trees and plants find their forever homes. Thank you for your efforts to keep our urban forest healthy! For some, this is the first time they've had an opportunity to put a tree in the ground and it is often a joyous and powerful occasion! To add to the fun, we often suggest that volunteers name their trees. Here's some notable names from Saturday: Tundra, Pete, Sepitroth, November, Dragon, Hope. 💚🌲🌳🌿
