Removing a hazardous tree (Updated)

Release Date: February 13, 2017

In a forested community like Sammamish, unhealthy or hazardous trees can pose a safety threat. On Sunday, Jan. 8, for example, a large tree fell on a house in the Klahanie neighborhood. Although nobody was injured, it’s a reminder that property owners should have a good fix on the health of their trees.

Update: The City has partnered with American Forest Management to develop a brochure on identifying the Sammamish area’s four most common root rot diseases. Be sure to check it out! 

For comprehensive information on the city’s tree ordinance and the rules governing the removal of trees, please take a look at the city’s Tree Management webpage.
