• Learn How to Prune Trees
• Work with City Arborists to Prune Trees
• Have Fun and Meet your Neighbors

    Meet your neighbors, have fun and help prune the trees along the NE 72nd
    Avenue Park Blocks. Portland Parks & Recreation and the Roseway
    Neighborhood Association will offer three hands-on pruning workshops to
    prune 80 young trees along NE 72nd Avenue from Sandy to Prescott Street.
    Planted in 2003, the trees are now fully established and need to be pruned
    for safety, low branches and structure.

    No pruning experience is necessary. Portland Parks & Recreation arborists
    will teach basic pruning techniques, and help supervise the pruning. To
    register for this workshop contact Karl Dawson with Portland Parks &
    Recreation at 503-823-1650 or kdawson@ci.portland.or.us. Join us for the
    full two hours, or as long as you can.

    Light snacks and refreshments provided.

    If you have any questions about your street trees, please call Portland Parks & Recreation City Nature for a street tree inspection at 503-823-4489. City tree inspectors are available to assess your street trees, and issue pruning, planting or tree removal permits.

    Friends of Trees planting

    It was a beautiful day, we planted 97 trees in Cully, Rose City Park and Roseway. Between donations from businesses and participants we were able to cover 100% of the costs and there is $15 left in our neighborhood fund for next year (Friends of Trees collects donations with tree orders and will forward that extra dollars to next year’s planting). The $300 that the neighborhood association set aside for the planting can be reallocated!

    People are living books. The real library of life is community.
