Seattle has lost one of the great ones.

We here at PlantAmnesty are deeply saddened to have to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Cass Turnbull, while vacationing in Hawaii with her husband. She suffered a fatal heart attack after a swim.

She was the power, the energy, the humor and the magic behind PlantAmnesty. We will miss her terribly.




Cass, RIP – you will be MISSED and we will carry on for you, rest assured!

West Seattle neighbors putting up a fight to protect ponderosa pine

The ponderosa pine located in the middle of the side yard of 3038 39th Ave SW isn’t just any old tree.

It’s more than 90 years old, stretches higher than 100 feet up in the sky and has become a favorite landmark in the neighborhood.

The tree is also in imminent danger of being cut down – and has become the center of a heated debate.

Lisa Parriott has lived across the street from what she calls “the Silent Giant” for the past 24 years.

She explained that the former owner of 3038 39th Ave SW sold his house last winter.

“He had this gorgeous tree on his property,” she said. “It’s perfectly straight, perfectly healthy and it frames all of our yards. We love this tree. It’s precious to us.”

Parriott said that the pine has been designated an “exceptional tree” by the Seattle Municipal Code (SMC 25.11) and therefore protected.
