Who we are
Passionate people protecting our planet
through practical programs and partnerships
Our name, 300 Trees, is a tribute to hundreds of trees that were needlessly cut down in East Bellevue by Puget Sound Energy to build a redundant power line in 2020.
Long story short, we lost the battle to save inspiring trees planted in the last century by forward-thinking city leaders.
But we can’t give up when our city and our planet is at stake. The decisions we make today will determine what kind of world our kids and grandkids inherit.
Instead of continuing to fight PSE and our city, we see enormous opportunities to build partnerships and serve our community.
One tree at a time.
