Arbor Day

Thanks to all that joined us for our 2016 Arbor Day celebration! 

A special note of appreciation to all the volunteers, Neighborhood Tree Stewards, Urban Forestry Commissioners and community partners- Friends of Trees, Bureau of Environmental Services, Hoyt Arboretum Friends, Friends of the Outdoor School, Portland State University Office of Sustainability, World Forest Institute and Visiting Fellows, Wild Life Habitats, Portland Parks' Environmental Education GRUNT program (Greenspaces Restoration and Urban Naturalist Team), and ReWild Portland. Stay tuned for photos from the event!

Share your Tree Story!

Our story project continues! We want to hear from you, so send your tree story to: In 500 words or less, please describe a tree that has been significant to you and why. Be sure to include information about type of tree (if you know) or names by which the tree was known. Also, where the tree was located. Feel free to send photos, too!

We plan to share these stories with the general public on our Urban Forestry website and as part of our greater art project, The Year in Tree Stories. By submitting your stories and/or photos, you consent to use of these by the City of Portland for any lawful purpose, including, for example, promotion of Urban Forestry programs, publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
