Private property

Eighteen trees on private property north and south of Sea-Tac Airport have been identified for removal. Ten trees are within the City of SeaTac, seven are within the City of Burien and one straddles city right of way in the City of Des Moines. Six of the ten trees within the City of SeaTac are on Hillgrove Pioneer Cemetery property.

The Port will coordinate directly with all private property owners before any work commences. The Port will also negotiate with each private property owner on securing a permanent easement on the property should any obstructions require removal in the future. The Port is planning to remove these trees in 2020/2021.
