Community Workshops

Urban Forestry hosts community workshops on a wide variety of tree topics. We can help you learn more about general tree care, how to identify common trees, how to prune trees, which tree to plant at your home, and more! Workshops are organized by neighborhood Tree Teams or Tree Stewards and are located throughout the city. All of our workshops are open to the public and tree lovers with all levels of knowledge are welcome to participate.

We are currently planning our summer and fall workshops. Please check back shortly for registration details or sign up for Urban Forestry's e-newsletter, TreeBark, to receive updates straight to your inbox!   

Another great way to connect to Portland's urban trees is to get involved with Urban Forestry's Park Tree Inventory. See the full schedule and register for inventory events here.
