Identifying Heritage Trees in Parkrose and Parkrose Heights

Join Urban Forestry instructors Jim Gersbach, Will Koomjian and Dave Hedberg, along with the Parkrose and Parkrose Heights Tree Teams for an exploration of potential Heritage Trees through a short presentation and neighborhood walk.

The Parkrose and Parkrose Heights neighborhoods are steeped in history and trees offer an opportunity to preserve these stories as a connection to the past. This workshop will highlight local history, Urban Forestry's Heritage Tree Program, and the process for nominating Heritage Trees.

Bestowing Heritage status upon a tree of significant horticultural, historical or cultural value imparts the greatest honor and protection that the city can provide for a tree. Learn more about this program and the magnificent trees of East Portland this Saturday. Here are the details:
