Environmental Services Tree Program Brings 500 Trees to Commercial and Industrial Areas this Winter

1 Comment

The Environmental Services Tree Program is planting street trees with 134 commercial and industrial partners this winter. More than 500 trees will be planted across Portland east of the Willamette River, including North and East Portland.  Planting remains on schedule despite this winter’s snow storms.

This is the second year of a city-wide project that works businesses, non-profits, and multi-family residential properties.  Last year the program planted 212 street trees with 64 partners, mostly west of the Willamette River. Crews planted an additional 400 street trees with multi-family residential properties on both sides of the river.

Every tree planted in Portland contributes to cleaner rivers and streams. Environmental Services has a longstanding planting program to bring street trees to areas that lack trees. 

Environmental Services contractors will plant trees and water them for their first three summers.  Property owners then assume responsibility for tree care.  Planting this year’s trees began the first week of December and is expected to continue through February.

This is a really great program to know about and those of us with the newly-formed Kerns Tree Team will do our best to promote it in the parts of our neighborhood with commercial/industrial development and multi-family housing. Thanks!
