University of Washington

Campus Management Plan and Capital Projects
Seattle, WA

University of Washington’s Seattle campus has a diverse and historic arboreal collection that Tree Solutions Inc has been helping manage for almost two decades. Our team created the first comprehensive Tree Inventory and Management Plan:  we documented 8500 trees on campus and trained multiple student research teams on data collection including tree health, stability, appraisal values and tree management priorities.  

The campus continues to evolve with capital projects, renovations and construction. We continue to provide permitting and tree retention services for them, collaborating with both architects and contractors, confirming that tree retention plans are realistic, and are implemented. A sample of the projects we have worked on include: Elm Hall, Mercer Hall, Fisheries & Science Building, Terry Lander Hall Renovation, Ethnic Cultural Center, Anderson Hall, Hall Health Primary Care Center, House of Knowledge, Burke Museum, UW Campus Parkway, Architecture Hall, Molecular Engineering Building, University Transit Center at Husky Stadium, HUB redevelopment, Savery Hall, Medical Center, UW Playhouse Elm, Sylvan Grove Theater Master Plan, and UW Foster School of Business.

We are privileged to be able to work with the University on the continued assessment and management of their diverse and exceptional tree collection. Our experience and longevity on this campus helps to guide the protection of historic and educationally significant trees over time, as well as supporting the university’s canopy cover goals.
