Eastlake Tree Walk – Sat., April 25 10 a.m. to noon. Again to be led by Arthur Lee Jacobsen, author of Trees of Seattle. Gather at Roanoke Street-end Park (corner of Fairview Ave. E. and E. Roanoke St.). Meet and greet with refreshments begins at 9:30 a.m. We take a different route every year, and suggestions are welcome beforehand, to info@ eastlakeseattle.org. If you want Jacobson’s quick take on identification or diagnosis, he encourages you to bring a twig or photo. During the walk we may also identify and document trees important to the neighborhood in an effort to save them when development happens.
