Portland's trees are bursting with colorful flowers - take a ride around town to enjoy them before they drop!
Take a ride outside and explore Portland's many flower-coated streets!
With more than 25,000 street trees blooming across the City, spring is the best time of year to take them in and stretch your legs on a bike ride.

There is no better way to explore Portland in the springtime than through the streets lined by flowering trees!

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.
