There’s a few new saplings along Ballard Ave, replacing the dead trees that the City removed last year.
At least nine dying trees were removed in downtown Ballard as part of a joint project between Ballard Alliance and Seattle’s Urban Forestry program. They also started removing the invasive English Ivy from the trees along Ballard Ave, an ongoing project to keep the existing trees healthy.
The new trees that are being planted are Paper Bark Maples and Afterburner Tupelos, which during the fall will turn bright red, the Ballard Alliance says.
