Street Trees of Seattle: Documenting our Changing City
Street Trees of Seattle: Documenting our Changing City

Seattle has one of the most diverse collections of street trees in the country. "Street Trees of Seattle" by Taha Ebrahimi is an unconventional walking guide based on city data going back to 1950 that covers approximately 170,000 street trees. Using data visualization as a starting point, the author takes readers on a tour of existing street trees throughout 33 of Seattle’s neighborhoods and iconic parks through charming illustrations and maps. In the process, she educates on the history of the trees and the city, answering questions like how monkey puzzle trees came to Seattle, and which neighborhood has the highest concentration of cherry street trees.
