The business district of Wedgwood, centered on the arterial 35th Ave NE, is busy and brisk in the autumn 2019 season.

The flame ash street trees which line the arterial 35th Ave NE were planted between 1965 to 1972 by Urban Forestry of the Seattle Department of Transportation, which does all street-tree work.  Here is the City of Seattle map of street trees.
