Branching Out in Hazelwood and Mill Park

Join Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry to bring more trees to the Hazelwood and Mill Park neighborhoods. 

Trees provide us with many services that are beneficial.

  • They clean our air and water, provide shade, and cooling
  • Calm traffic on busy streets
  • Improve public health
  • Lower stress levels
  • Reduce noise pollution
  • Create homes for birds, bugs and other animals
  • Create a place for play, rest, and celebration                                                     

Why focus on Hazelwood and Mill Park?    

For the next two years, we will focus on bringing trees and opportunities to learn about trees to the Hazelwood and Mill Park neighborhoods. These neighborhoods are in close proximity to Interstates 205 and 84 and more trees means cleaner air for community members. In 2017, PP&R Urban Forestry partnered with Portland State University to find out where community members would like to see trees. In general, we found that people would like to see trees where there aren’t any and that neighborhoods east of 82nd Avenue have less tree canopy than neighborhoods to the west.  You can learn more about that study here.
