Portland Arbor Day

Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry is making a special change to our Arbor Day celebration – we are moving it to October!

Due to our changing climate, Portland’s hot dry summers have made it more difficult for trees planted in April to succeed. By moving Arbor Day to October, we can plant new trees and take advantage of our nice wet winter months to help them get established. We are excited about this change and to provide an opportunity to work with Portlanders to plant new trees and give them the best opportunity to thrive.

Share your Tree Story!

Is there a tree that is special to you? Honor that tree and share your story at, a website dedicated to collecting tree stories developed by our friends at Portland State University's Institute for Sustainable Solutions. is a way to share trees stories, find cool trees around Portland, raise awareness of the value of trees in a beautiful city like Portland, and perhaps even preserve magnificent trees from being removed.
