Join Urban Forestry for a Winter Tree Identification Workshop
Saturday, February 28, 2015 9:30-11:30 am
Lone Fir Cemetery – SE 26th Avenue between SE Stark and SE Morrison
Enjoy the beautiful trees of Lone Fir Cemetery while improving your tree id skills. Can you identify a tree from bud and leaf scars, bark, and twigs? Only the three heritage trees at the cemetery will be labeled (the namesake Douglas fir; the General Joseph Lane maple; and a 100-foot incense cedar!) Lone Fir is Portland’s oldest continuously used cemetery and is now a de facto arboretum, with 500 trees representing 67 species. Participants will walk the grounds and discover a new way of looking at trees without leaves. Bring your camera!
