Event: Live Oaks and Dead Folks

We might think the only thing living at Lone Fir Cemetery is the trees, but those who call it their resting place still live on in the history of Portland. All ghosts, ghouls, and goblins are welcomed to join us on Friday, October 30 at 5:30 to meet those with their feet in the ground and learn about how they have impacted the city we see today.

We will host this tree walk both in-person and online via Zoom - be sure to wear your spookiest mask if attending in person!


Please pre-register, an invitation to join the webinar will be sent to registered attendees beforehand with the link to join the webinar.
The workshop will begin promptly at 5:30 pm, please note that email will not be checked during the scheduled program time.

Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry's mission is to manage and ensure Portland's urban forest infrastructure for current and future generations. Portland’s urban forest consists of 236,000 street trees, 1.2 million park trees, and innumerable private property trees. Urban Forestry is involved in managing or regulating all of these trees to differing degrees. Urban Forestry staff issue permits for planting, pruning, and removal of all public and some private trees and are on call 24/7 to respond to tree emergencies.
