Autumn 2020 in Wedgwood in northeast Seattle is bright with colorful trees. The arterial 35th Ave NE is lined with flame ash trees from the center of the neighborhood at NE 85th Street, northward to where 35th Ave NE merges with Lake City Way NE at NE 137th Street.
Wedgwoodians love their street trees and yard trees with varieties of Japanese maples among the most popular. Japanese maple trees have delicate leaves with glowing reds, oranges and yellows in autumn.
The traditional trick-or-treat in the Wedgwood business district will not be held this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but families will still have fun with seasonal decorations such as pumpkins. The annual Pumpkin Patch, a fundraiser for a Scout troop, is open on Saturdays & Sundays through the end of October.
The Pumpkin Patch is located at the Hunter Tree Farm site, 7744 35th Ave NE, next to the Wedgwood post office. This gathering space is used all year round for produce stands, community activities and of course for the annual Christmas Tree sales in December.
