Arbor Month 2014 was a huge success! 

Thank you to all of the partners who made Arbor Month 2014 possible!

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 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 public trees. 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 plantings, tree care and ID workshops, tree tour bike rides, and more opportunities to care for the trees that care for us.

If you want to help Portland celebrate trees, become an Arbor Month partner! Urban Forestry is seeking organizations, neighborhoods, social groups, schools, businesses, and volunteers to partner with in order to plan events for Arbor Month 2015.
