From Stumptown to Treetown

According to David-Paul B. Hedberg, Portland’s urban forest is rooted in the city’s history. Through an internship with Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry, David, a graduate student in the Department of History at Portland State University, authored a ten-stop interpretive walking tour of Portland's Heritage Trees. David’s award winning booklet, From Stumptown to Treetown: A Field Guide for Interpreting Portland’s History though its Heritage Trees, connects historic photos to living trees in the city and invites you to explore some of Portland’s oldest living features.
