Residents can order discounted trees now—the earlier the better!

FoT_Planting_Bradley-YorkAll that good, squishy soil means it’s tree-planting time, and Friends of Trees is getting ready to hit the ground in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

Residents who want to order discounted trees for their street or yard should sign up by December 30 in order to be a part of the February 1st  planting in our neighborhood. To sign up and browse the tree selection, visit www.friendsoftrees.org/plant-it-programs or call 503-282-8846.

Trees cost $35-75, which includes delivery, planting by volunteers (you’re encouraged to join!), permitting, mulch, stakes, and follow-up maintenance—a $200 value. If you can’t afford a tree, Friends of Trees has scholarships available. Each planting starts with breakfast and ends with a potluck.

“Plantings are like a party with your neighbors. It’s all about good food, good people, and being able to say ‘I planted that!’” says Whitney Dorer, Neighborhood Trees Manager for Friends of Trees.

Over the last several months, WNA has worked to craft new language for our bylaws in an effort to make these guiding principles the best they can be for our organization. We’ve presented the proposed changes at several meetings, heard some additional feedback and incorporated changes. As always, we invite everyone’s participation! Will you join us as we vote to adopt our new bylaws?
