In this collaboration between Renton Forestry, Renton GIS, and the Renton Museum, you will stroll streets in downtown Renton. You can start at any point on the route.

Some of the trees are old enough to witness the historical legacy. Trees are an essential part of what helps make urban environments pleasant places. They also serve as living links to the vivid tapestry of the history of our town.

Existing significant trees are identified. At each location, information will populate in the story map providing details about the tree and the past – people, places, and activities that make up the vibrant history from the last century. In addition, reveal historical photos at each location by swiping left from the initial tree pictures. Enjoy!
