Event: Ask an Arborist - Community Tree Plantings

Did you know PP&R Urban Forestry supports community tree planting events? For over 20 years, Urban Forestry has worked with schools to successfully plant and establish thousands of trees through our Learning Landscapes program. We also respond to requests for tree planting in areas that have a high need for more tree canopy coverage.

Do you want to have a tree planting event at your school, community space, or other areas that all Portlanders can enjoy? Join us on Thursday, December 10, at 3:00pm to learn what the application process looks like, what trees you can have planted, and how to work with our stewardship coordinator to make your community tree planting a success!


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 3:00pm, 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.
