IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD STEET TREE PLANTING PROJECT
presents Art Installation:
SUMMER IN THE CITY, 2012
To celebrate the urban curbside forest created by successive tree plantings 1991-2011 (by permit: Right Tree/Right Place with trees provided by Seattle City Light, Department of Neighborhoods, Department of Transportation, donations), selected project street trees will receive “tree necklaces” crafted by local tree stewards of all ages. These wooden plaques are hand-painted on repurposed plywood with designs depicting individual tree leaf shapes and characteristics, and are hung with care using biodegradable clothesline. Tree varieties are noted on the reverse, Latin and common names. Learn them all! Create an urban forest game while leaving the art installation components on the trees! Seattle City Light has sanctioned this project and each necklace plaque bears a SCL approval sticker. Brought to you by SDOT Volunteer
