Seattle City Light Urban Tree Replacement    (View PDF)

Ben Barnes and Julia Greenlee

Abstract: In the spring of 1988 Seattle City Light developed a Citizens' Advisory Forum on Tree Replacement comprised of representatives of its distribution service area. The forum was charged with the development of policy recommendations for removal and replacement of trees that interfere with power lines. On April 6, 1989, the Tree Replacement Forum submitted its recommendations to the Utility. Since that time, the Utility has been developing those recommendations into a workable program that will enhance the environment for our customers, communities, and other interested entities within our distribution system.
