Trees care for us. We care for trees.


Portland Arbor Month is April 2014. The theme is STEWARDSHIP: Trees care for us. We care for Trees. Arbor Month is the month-long celebration of Portland’s urban forest and its nearly 1.5 million street trees, park trees, and trees in natural areas. These trees are stewarded by Portland Parks & Recreation, city bureaus, partners, and volunteers. Arbor Month begins on April 2nd with media announcements featuring bucket truck rides into the canopies of some incredible specimens. There are many more events, including the Arbor Day Festival on April 26th 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. The Arbor Month committee is looking for tree-related events to add to the Arbor Month calendar. Contact Autumn Montegna to add your event to the calendar today.

Arbor Day is the annual celebration of our urban forest. The U.S. celebrates Arbor Day (April 25). Oregon celebrates Arbor Week (April 7-13). In Portland, we celebrate trees all month long in April. This year, Arbor Month highlights stewardship: how trees care for us and how we care for trees.  Be a partner to the urban forest during Arbor Month 2014, by hosting a tree-care event. 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.
