Street Trees of Seattle: Documenting our Changing City

Tuesday, May 14, 2024
6 – 8 pm

The MOHAI Mercantile Literary Series brings you a book signing for Street Trees of Seattle, and a conversation between author Taha Ebrahimi, Susanna Ryan (author of Seattle Walk Report), and Cynthia Brothers (Creator of Vanishing Seattle) about their different methods of documenting a changing city.

Seattle has one of the most diverse collections of street trees in the country. Street Trees of Seattle by Taha Ebrahimi is an unconventional walking guide based on city data going back to 1950 that covers approximately 170,000 street trees. Using data visualization as a starting point, the author takes readers on a tour of existing street trees throughout 33 of Seattle’s neighborhoods and iconic parks through charming illustrations and maps. In the process, she educates on the history of the trees and the city, answering questions like how monkey puzzle trees came to Seattle, and which neighborhood has the highest concentration of cherry street trees.
