Calling Foster-Powell Tree Lovers: Help Increase Our Neighborhood’s Tree Canopy

Difference of tree canopy in high- and low-income neighborhoods

Do you like trees?

Have you ever walked down the street during the hot summer heat and wished there was more tree shade you could walk underneath to cool down? Would you like to see more trees in Foster-Powell (yard trees or street trees)?

Portland Parks and Recreation (PP&R) Urban Forestry wants to hear from you!

PP&R Urban Forestry is charged to plant more trees to increase the Urban Tree Canopy equitably throughout Portland so that all Portlanders can enjoy the many benefits of trees.

Join the Project Advisory Committee

We need your voice at the table in order to understand and identify barriers to tree plantings in low tree canopy neighborhoods and make recommendations to PP&R Urban Forestry on how to increase tree canopy.

You are invited you to join the Project Advisory Committee which will meet once a month from June through October (5 meetings).

Dinner and child will be provided at each meeting.
