Friends of Trees is a local organization whose mission is to bring people in the Portland-Vancouver metro area together to plant and care for city trees and green spaces. Through their Neighborhood Trees program, homeowners buy discounted trees to plant with their neighbors at weekend plantings.
This year’s planting day is December 4th, from 7:30AM to 2:30PM. The group will be leaving from St. Paul Lutheran Church at 3880 SE Brooklyn Street.
The final day to order yard trees is November 21st. Anyone interested in ordering a tree or assisting with the plantings should contact Jeff Burns at jeff(at)organicmodern(dot)com, or visit the Friends of Trees website at http://www.friendsoftrees.org.
