Friends of Trees Leadership Awards
May 10, 2018
Last night, Nick was honored to receive the Community Partner Award at the Friends of Trees Annual Leadership Awards Reception.
Friends of Trees is a local non-profit focused on creating a healthy urban tree canopy, restoring sensitive natural areas, caring for trees, and – most importantly – planting more trees! They have been a key community partner for many years.
Friends of Trees recognized Nick for his leadership as the Commissioner in charge of the Bureau of Environmental Services, and previously Portland Parks & Recreation, for his work to update the City’s tree code, and for his commitment to making our city greener and more livable, especially in tree-underserved East Portland.
