We plant trees + grow community

Summer is a slower time for Friends of Trees, but we’ll return to planting events and a high need for volunteers in Fall 2021! We will continue to modify our events based on the most recent CDC guidelines to ensure they are as safe and healthy as possible, more information is here, and the event calendar is here, and will be updated in late summer with our Fall planting schedule. You can stay connected with us through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, where we’re sharing information and stories about trees + community. Until further notice the Portland office is closed to the public; appointments may be made with individual staff as necessary. We hope you and yours are safe and well.

Friends of Trees inspires people to improve the world around them through a simple solution:

Today we're talking about the Persian Ironwood aka Parrotia persica! This 😍🌳 is commonly planted along our streets & thrives in sunny areas with well-drained, loamy, slightly acidic soils. Once established, this 🌳 is drought, heat, wind, cold & pest tolerant. #treetalkmonday https://t.co/HYf2Rq4ulG
