The City of Tumwater has a “tree account” for the purposes of acquiring, maintaining and preserving wooded areas, and for planting and maintaining trees in public spaces.
The Tree Account is a separate interest-bearing account. All fines collected for tree and vegetation violations are deposited into the tree account. All donations and mitigation fees collected related to the preservation of trees or the enhancement of wooded buffer areas are deposited into this account.
Tree Account funds are used to plant trees and may be used only on city-owned property, or on property upon which the city has been granted an easement for the purpose of establishing or maintaining trees or other vegetation. The City Council is responsible for appropriating these funds.
