By-Law Changes (Proposed)

Oops. Sorry...
Oops. Sorry…

Due to a regrettable oversight by the RNA webmaster (that would be me) the proposed changes to the association by-laws could not be voted on at the July 14, 2015 general meeting because they had not been properly posted here on the website. Below is the link to the proposed changes. They will be voted on at a future general meeting.

My apologies for the inconvenience and embarrassment that  my oversight caused the board and its chairman.

Tree Inventory

Walking around your neighborhood, do you see spaces to plant a tree, street trees in need of maintenance, and neighbors who are concerned about their trees but don’t know where to begin? Through the Tree Inventory Project, Urban Forestry is helping Portlanders take action to improve their community’s street trees, one neighborhood at a time. Here’s a link for more info.

Volunteers are guided by Urban Forestry staff, who provide training, tools, and event organization. Together, information is collected on tree species, size, health, site conditions, and available planting spaces. Data are analyzed by Urban Forestry staff, and findings are presented to neighborhood stakeholders at an annual Tree Summit  at the end of the season in November. At the summit, neighborhood groups begin developing tree plans: They form a working neighborhood tree group and set achievable strategies to improve existing trees, expand tree canopy, and connect the neighborhood with city and nonprofit resources.

More than just producing data and a tree plan, this project brings communities together. Participating in the tree inventory project is a great way to meet your neighbors and connect with others who value our green resources!

Our Roseway inventory dates are:
Roseway 6/20/2015 Saturday 8:30 am – noon 1034909
Roseway 7/1/2015 Wednesday 4:30 – 8:00 pm 1034910
Roseway 7/25/2015 Saturday 8:30 am – noon 1034911
Roseway 8/29/2015 Saturday 8:30 am – noon 1034912
