Tree Summit

Tree Summit 2019 Floyd Light
Each year we come together to share the season's findings, as well as the latest research and ideas for improving our neighborhoods' urban forests.

Tree Summit 2019

Tree Summit 2019 took place Saturday, October 26th at Floyd Light Middle School, in Portland's Mill Park neighborhood. Last year's theme was Climate Change, Science, and Activism in Portland's Urban Forest. Presentations included research on how urban trees are adapting to changes in our climate, the latest on what's killing our native Western Redcedars and inspiring stories of activism in our community.

Tree Summit was not held in 2020 & 2021, but we look forward to seeing you in 2022!

About Portland Parks & Recreation UrbanForestry

The mission of PP&R’s Urban Forestry (UF) division is to manage and care for Portland's tree infrastructure in the City for current and future generations. Portland’s urban forest consists of 220,000 street trees, 1.2 million park trees, and innumerable private property trees. The Urban Forestry division is involved in managing or regulating these trees. UF created and implements the City of Portland's Urban Forest Management Plan, fosters community tree awareness and stewardship, develops tree policies and programs, monitors and assesses Portland’s urban forest, and issues permits for planting, pruning, and removal of public and some private trees. During extreme weather at all times of the year, UF crews respond to tree emergencies to keep you safe and the City moving.
