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:
||8:30 am – noon
||4:30 – 8:00 pm
||8:30 am – noon

Last night’s General Meeting of the Roseway Neighborhood Association included a visit from Chase Ballew, a graduate student from the Master of Urban and Regional Planning of Portland State University. His presentation about curbside recycling was followed with a lively question and answer time regarding Portland’s program.
Here’s a link to some of the material he presented.
Chase reminded those who have been around awhile of how complicated recycling used to be here in Roseway. Join Max Roseway for some humorous reflections on neighborhood rubbish disposal. Ah, those were the days.
The Roseway Neighborhood Association is considering some changes to the by-laws. Your thoughts, suggestions and comments would be appreciated. Here’s the link to the proposed changes that will be considered at the meeting on April 14, 2015.
