This booklet provides an introduction to the trees of Lake Forest Park with the hope that it will lead to a greater understanding and enjoyment of those trees and our community. Trees, and in particular the large native conifers, have provided a strong physical and psychological framework for the community since its settlement a century ago. In recent years we have become much more informed about the vital functions trees perform in safeguarding the quality of our water, air and other aspects of our environment. By absorbing storm water runoff, providing nutrients, and moderating temperatures, trees are the major contributors to healthy streams, lakes and wetlands, and the plant and animal life that lives there. The heart of this publication centers on four neighborhood walks that locate and identify a small cross section of the interesting trees found in our community.
