Plant trees by bike this weekend


Do you love Portland's tree lined streets? Do you like to bicycle? Do you like to join with your fellow Portlanders in neighborly outdoor activities?

The forecast for Saturday morning looks pretty good, so why not join Friends of Trees for their first bicycle tree planting of the 2010-11 season?

This Friends of Trees planting will take place in the Richmond, Buckman & HAND Neighborhoods in SE Portland.  As always they’ll be hauling all of the trees, tools and people for the planting crews using bicycle trailers and cargo bikes.  Breakfast and Lunch will be fed to all participants!


Meet at the St. Paul Lutheran Church at 3880 SE Brooklyn St by 8:15 am on Saturday, Dec 4th. This is about a 4.5 hour commitment; you will be done by 1:00 pm.  For the bike tree planting crews, bring your own bicycle and if you have a cargo bike or bike trailer please bring that.  Also dress for the weather as they will plant rain or shine. Work gloves and tools are provided.


Those who want to plant trees but don't feel like biking are always welcome as well!


For more information on this weekend's bike tree planting, contact Peter Niergarten at peternierengarten <at>, 503-367-4444.

I take the 16 bus from St. Johns to downtown in the morning and the 44 home in the evening. :-)
