Thank you! And happy new year.


To all of our supporters,


Your support in 2020 meant that, despite unimaginable obstacles, we were still able to plant trees + grow community.

What a year.

So many people supported us in so many ways, it has often brought me to tears. Your commitment is real and I thank you for that.

Your support plants trees in neighborhoods and natural areas while bringing people together and building resilience in our communities.

We can’t do this without you!

Here’s to a tree-filled 2021,

Whitney Dorer, Interim Executive Director

PS: Plant trees with us! When we are planting we are doing so with a number of health and safety features in place to ensure our events are as safe as possible. Check out our events calendar for the latest information about our community tree planting events – and how to get involved!

Thanks to your generosity, the 2013 Willamette Week Give!Guide raised $2.4 million dollars for 130 organizations, including Friends of Trees!

You have a big heart for trees, and it shows. Donations to Friends of Trees topped $23,000, exceeding last year’s total. We also won a $500 bonus for having the most donors under 35 years old in the environment category—our third year in a row! You can see all of the results at

So enjoy your free ice cream and tacos, you wonderful donors you.

And a hearty thanks to the Portland Timbers and Thorns, our Give!Guide business partners. Keep it up, Rose City!
