Portland Parks & Recreation is proud to announce the publication of the final report!
Growing a more equitable forest: Portland's citywide tree planting strategy
Share your opinions about tree planting in this short survey that closes June 30.
Help the City of Portland develop its tree planting strategy to ensure that all residents have access to trees. Currently, tree canopy in Portland is not equitably distributed throughout the city: lower income neighborhoods have significantly lower tree canopy than other neighborhoods.
Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry is partnering with community members, stakeholders, and Portland State University to identify the best ways to expand tree canopy access for all residents. Feedback from this short survey will help us understand opportunities and barriers to tree planting in our communities.
Applications due April 23, 2017

This website serves as the home for information about the development of Portland's Citywide Tree Planting Strategy -- a strategy that aims to equitably expand Portland's tree canopy and engage communities. This project is a collaboration between Portland State University's Sustaining Urban Places Research Lab and Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry. The project is for one year -- beginning in September 2016 and ending in December 2017.
The website is also the primary place to learn about the project and find opportunities for participation. You can participate in many ways, including sharing your feedback, participating on a Public Advisory Committee, attending a workshop, and/or taking our tree planting survey.
