True Love Trees
by Bruce Dear
Meadowbrook’s iconic True-Love trees are at risk! This remarkable cedar-fir couple have been growing as one for almost 100 years along Thornton Creek in north Seattle. Recently a developer has applied to Seattle’s Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI) to cut them down, in order to build new homes. Yet, a respected local architect has drawn up plans which show how the same amount of housing can be built around these amazing trees and their nearby grove.
