Berrydale Park and Creative Science School at Clark

The Creative Science School at Clark Learning Landscape was initiated in December 2009 with a planting of 35 trees. The collection now includes 55 trees. This tree walk identifies trees planted as part of the Learning Landscape as well as other interesting specimens at the school.

The adjacent Berrydale Park is home to over 130 trees and a fruitful community garden.

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 nearly 3 million 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.
