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.
