|8/3/23 Maple Leaf neighborhood|
One of many things we love about the Maple Leaf neighborhood is the large number of trees here. As I implied a few days ago, a sketch reportage project I’ve been working on has raised my awareness of Seattle’s mature trees and the alarming rate at which they are disappearing. This healthy Douglas fir, which stands on a property with an old house that is about to be razed for a development, is within walking distance of home. It will likely be cut down imminently.
I feel compelled to sketch all these old trees before they disappear from our urban landscape.
Updated 8/14/23: This Douglas fir was cut down.
