Practice your tree identification!
No prior experience required!
Although books and online resources are useful tools for identifying trees, the best and most memorable way to learn about trees is by seeing them up close and in person.
A tree walk lets you not only see trees but also learn about them through touch and smell.
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.
