Join Urban Forestry instructors Jim Gersbach, Will Koomjian and Dave Hedberg, along with the Parkrose and Parkrose Heights Tree Teams for an exploration of potential Heritage Trees through a short presentation and neighborhood walk.
The Parkrose and Parkrose Heights neighborhoods are steeped in history and trees offer an opportunity to preserve these stories as a connection to the past. This workshop will highlight local history, Urban Forestry's Heritage Tree Program, and the process for nominating Heritage Trees.
Bestowing Heritage status upon a tree of significant horticultural, historical or cultural value imparts the greatest honor and protection that the city can provide for a tree. Learn more about this program and the magnificent trees of East Portland this Saturday. Here are the details:
When: Saturday, March 19, 2016, 1-3pm (registration, snacks and refreshments at 12:30pm)
