Mayor Ava Frisinger proclaimed three trees as Heritage Trees last week — a designation meant to reflect the age, size, historic significance and ecological value of the woody plants.

The tree trio, at 317 Gilman Blvd. N.W., includes: the Coast Redwood, the Blue Atlas Cedar and the Bigleaf Magnolia.

City Park Board members developed the Heritage Tree Program to promote identification and recognition of trees that reflect the character of Issaquah. Every heritage tree is identified and recorded in a register maintained by the city Parks and Recreation Department.

“I urge all citizens to enjoy and protect our Heritage Trees and to appreciate the value that these and other trees give our community,” Frisinger said in a news release.
