Tree Canopy Assessment
In 2018 King County Conservation District (KCD) provided the City of Normandy Park with an Urban Tree Canopy Assessment as part of their South King County Tree Canopy Assessment Initiative. Below you will find links to the full report, a two-page factsheet, and KCD’s interactive tree canopy map.
Heritage Tree Program
Trees are a vital asset to any community, and Normandy Park has embraced this value. Based on the 2018 Tree Canopy Survey from King Conservation District, Normandy Park has 740 acres, or 46%, of tree canopy. This is one of the highest percentages in King County. To celebrate, promote, preserve, and educate the public about this great asset, the city has established a Heritage Tree Program. The purpose of the program is to:
- Increase public awareness of trees and specifically Normandy Park’s urban forest.
- Draw attention to and protect our unique and significant heritage trees.
- Reinforce that all trees are one of the key components of our city’s unique character and sense of place.

Does Normandy Park have a Tree Ordinance
The City of Normandy Park does not have a tree ordinance, but property owners and tree services do have requirements that pertain to tree removal. Property owners are not required to have a permit for cutting down trees on their private property unless the trees are in a critical area, on a city easement, or if the property owner desires to do land clearing or grading or filling. For more information please see NPMC 13.20.
