Urban Forestry Calendar Pop-Up Arboreta Community Events Explore a Pop-Up Arboreta at Berrydale, Irving, University, and Gabriel Parks in July Berrydale, Irving, University, and Gabriel Parks Have you ever gone to the park and wondered why the trees have different leaves? Who is who in our parks? Can you smell the flowers of some trees, can you eat the fruit of others? Did some of our larger trees' ancestors once have giant sloths eating their seeds? Each of our neighborhood parks is a fascinating collection of trees worthy of being called an arboretum. For the month of July, Urban Forestry will be installing fun, informational signs on select trees in Berrydale, Irving, University, and Gabriel Parks. The installation provides interactive and informative facts about the trees of our parks. This year's Pop-Up Arboreta will be staged across the City of Portland from May through September, so pop in to a pop-up this summer! You can explore the signs in these Pop-up Arboreta in your local parks throughout the summer. For more information about the trees in Portland's parks, check out the online Park Tree Inventory.

Urban Forestry Calendar Threats to Urban Trees - Pests, Pathogens, and Drought Community Events Learn about the insects, fungi and other organisms that currently affect or may be a future threat to the trees of our city. Online via Zoom The trees of Portland need us to keep an eye on them and watch for signs of declining health, but how can you know what those signs look like? Portland has seen lower annual rainfall in the last three years, and many of our trees are sensitive to drought.
