The Collective

Our favorite tree is the largest species in the family Ericaceae. It is true native to the Cascadian bioregion. Read more about it in this comprehensive resource:

Arbutus menziesii is the 1st Western tree on TreeSnap. Now anyone can “tag” your favorite tree. All a person needs to do is download the free app on a mobile device and have a basic knowledge of how to identify the madrones.
With renewed interest in conserving madrones, Green Seattle Partnership decided to launch the Madrone Recovery Project in 2018 to restore the mixed conifer-broadleaf forests throughout Seattle's natural area parks.
Upcoming Events!
Join the Arbutus ARME on Saturday, February 16 in Seattle and March 23 in Puyallup. The workshops will explore madrone basics, forest ecology, pathogens, conservation efforts and propagation tips. We will also introduce everyone to the TreeSnap app to survey and map madrone anywhere and everywhere.

Pre-registration is required by following these links:
