ECAM is endorcing Trees4Livability: a new nonprofit seeking to update Bellevue’s tree code. Check out the website below. You will be shocked at how lax Bellevue’s tree code is. For example, Bellevue allows developers to cut down 5 Significant Trees without a permit and has no special protections for Landmark Trees which take 100-150 years to grow. Bellevue is the only municipality in the region with such lax policies.
Go to the website to sign a petition to Bellevue City Council to update the tree code and sign up to get involved with protecting trees in Bellevue.
