Urban Forestry Management Plan Updates


Urban Forest Plan engagement now open

We are excited to announce that the City of Bellingham’s draft Urban Forest Plan is now available for your review and comments through May 15. This draft includes all the feedback community members shared with the City during development of the Plan. You can share your thoughts on this draft in a variety of ways:


  • Take the online survey on Engage Bellingham. The survey closes Wednesday, May 15.

  • Attend a virtual community input session May 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The session will include a presentation followed by opportunities for input. 

  • Attend an in-person technical workshop. Workshops are intended for tribes, professionals, NGOs, and interest groups, but all community members are welcome to attend. All technical workshops will be held at the City of Bellingham Pacific Street Operations Center at 2221 Pacific Street, Bellingham. Enter through the north side of the building on Carolina Street. The dates and times of these workshops are:

  • April 24, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

  • May 13, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

  • May 15, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.


Your input will help the City finalize the first-ever COB Urban Forest Plan, which will guide how our community protects and enhances the trees and forests in Bellingham. The City expect to finalize the Plan this year. Read the draft Plan, learn more about the work that has gone into creating this Plan, and share your thoughts on the website



Community Tree Programs

To get a head start on meeting the goals in the upcoming Urban Forest Plan, as well as our city's existing Climate Action Plan, they are also launching exciting new programs to help grow our urban forest. These Community Tree Programs offer something for everyone including tree coupons to reduce the costs of planting trees on private property, grants for neighborhood tree planting projects, partnerships with local organizations, free tree giveaways at local events, youth education, and volunteer opportunities. By increasing our tree canopy cover, we're not just planting trees, we're investing in a greener, more vibrant Bellingham.
