The City of Kirkland is reaching out to the public through a 16-question survey (https://www.research.net/s/K28JXQ5) aimed at gauging how the public understands and values its trees. Citizens have until Sept. 14 to respond. The results of this survey will be incorporated into a strategic plan, which planners will present to the Kirkland City Council at the October 2 study session. Ultimately, the resulting management plan will guide the way Kirkland manages its urban forest.
For more than a decade, Kirkland has managed its urban forest through piecemeal policies, such as street tree planting requirements in developments. With these measures, Kirkland progressed toward its city-wide 40 percent tree canopy cover goal. And then, on June 1, 2011, Kirkland achieved its canopy goal all at once with the annexation of Kingsgate, North Juanita and Finn Hill.
