Friends of Trees invites homeowners in Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR, to sign up for trees to plant with their neighbors this fall and winter. The cost for a tree in the 29 Vancouver neighborhoods where we’re planting this year is $50. The cost for a tree in the 55 Portland neighborhoods where we’re planting is $35 to $75.
If this is more than you can afford, please call 503-595-0212 to sign up for a scholarship. Or help others beautify their neighborhood by donating to the scholarship fund at FriendsofTrees.org/Donate. Just select “Planting Scholarship Fund” from the donation category drop-down menu.
Add your name at FriendsofTrees.org/BuyTrees if you’d like to order a tree. Each neighborhood has one tree planting a year, and sign-up deadlines are approximately five weeks before each planting event. Friends of Trees’ new tree selections and engaging web site make selecting trees easy and fun. Your $35 to $75 fee includes the price of the tree, delivery, hole digging, planting assistance, stakes, and follow-up maintenance checks. You’ll also be invited to join a neighborhood potluck after the planting.
