Re-Green the Green
Strategy to grow trees along rivers and streams in the Green/Duwamish and Central Puget Sound Watershed
The lack of tall native trees along the banks of the Green River and its tributaries causes unhealthy and sometimes lethal conditions for Chinook and other salmon. In 2016 the WRIA 9 Riparian Revegetation Work Group developed the Re-Green the Green: Riparian Revegetation Strategy for the Green/Duwamish and Central Puget Sound Watershed (Adobe Acrobat) (2.36 MB).
The revegetation strategy includes:
- Maps of priority areas for tree planting, especially along the Green River and Soos and Newaukum Creeks;
- A target of planting 2,384 acres by 2025;
- Cost estimates and strategies for securing additional funding; and
- A new interactive map to track planting locations and progress.
