Arbor Day is a day to celebrate our community connections to trees and all the beauty and benefits they provide us. This year, we hope to uplift and celebrate our cultural connections to trees and our surrounding environment. This year we will be back at Mt. Scott Park, complete with food carts, multicultural performances, activities, and games for children.
Thank you to everyone that visited, volunteered, or contributed to our 2017 Portland Arbor Day Festival! It was great to see so many people come together to celebrate trees and our urban forest. Here are a few numbers to inspire:

Our story project continues! We want to hear from you, so send your tree story to firstname.lastname@example.org. In 500 words or less, please describe a tree that has been significant to you and why. Be sure to include information about type of tree (if you know) or names by which the tree was known. Also, where the tree was located. Feel free to send photos, too!
We plan to share these stories with the general public on our Urban Forestry website and as part of our greater art project, The Year in Tree Stories. By submitting your stories and/or photos, you consent to use of these by the City of Portland for any lawful purpose, including, for example, promotion of Urban Forestry programs, publicity, illustration, advertising and web content.
