Urban Forestry Calendar Pop-Up Arboreta Explore a Pop-Up Arboreta at Cherry, Argay, Sellwood Riverfront, and Farragut Parks in August Cherry, Argay, Sellwood Riverfront, and Farragut 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 August, Urban Forestry will be installing fun, informational signs on select trees in Cherry, Argay, Sellwood Riverfront, and Farragut 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 Your Tree, Right Place Are you thinking of planting a tree? Learn what to consider when making your selection. Online Via Zoom What kind of tree should I plant? It's a questions many Portlanders have to address each year, and one that will last a lifetime. Choosing the right tree for you is more than just a choice of aesthetic and desired attributes - you also want the tree to survive. The cost of a new tree is anywhere from $150-$300, and then you add on mulch, tools for care, all of the time you took to plant and care for your tree - it would be heartbreaking to see it die, especially if the cause was preventable before planting. Taking time to evaluate and assess the site where you want to plant a tree will help to guide your tree species selection - and may even introduce you to new trees you never knew existed. Urban Forestry Arborists will teach you what to consider while selecting a planting location and selecting a tree species - and demonstrate how to perform your site evaluation.
