The City of Bellevue is updating its tree code to clarify regulations and develop systems to better track and manage its overall tree canopy. Trees contribute to Bellevue’s character and livability, and they play important roles in natural systems. Trees oxygenate the air, provide food and habitat for small animals and microorganisms, and reduce the impact from stormwater runoff. They enhance the visual appearance of the community, promote better transition between land uses, and increase property values. Although trees can be removed and replaced with new plantings, it takes years or decades for young trees to reach maturity and provide the same benefits as existing trees. At the same time, tree removal can be necessary to build the housing Bellevue needs as it grows. Balancing the needs of a healthy urban tree canopy while providing housing for all is a critical task.

This questionnaire will ask about your perspectives on Bellevue’s tree canopy and opportunities to update regulations to support it. Your participation will help inform the changes we’re considering, including regulating trees on private property. Your responses will be anonymous. We expect this questionnaire to take approximately 7 minutes to complete.
