Check out all the cool tree things we did as we look forward to Arbor Month 2015!
PORTLAND ARBOR MONTH – APRIL 2014
Arbor Day is the annual celebration of our urban forest. In April, the U.S. celebrates Arbor Day; Oregon celebrates Arbor Week; and in Portland, we celebrate Portland’s urban forest and its nearly 1.5 million street trees, park trees, and trees in natural areas all month long! This year the theme was STEWARDSHIP: Trees care for us. We care for trees. Portland's trees are stewarded by Portland Parks & Recreation, city bureaus, partners, and volunteers. Arbor Month began on April 2 with media announcements featuring bucket truck rides into the canopies of some incredible specimens. There were many more events, including the Arbor Day Festival on April 26 at the Portland Farmers Market at PSU, as well as tree walks, tree planting, care and ID workshops, tree tour bike rides, and more opportunities to care for the trees that care for us.
ARBOR MONTH 2015
If you have a good idea about how to celebrate a tree or the almost 1.5 million of them in Portland’s parks, natural areas, and on its streets, become an Arbor Month partner. If you or your organization, neighborhood, social group, school, association, volunteer chapter or business are interested in the urban forest, the Arbor Month committee would like to put you on the calendar.
