Corner of NE Liberty and NE 29th
Can you identify common street trees? Do you want to improve your tree id skills? Or simply learn more more about trees? Join Urban Forestry staff and volunteers and help collect important tree inventory data. Those with more advanced tree identification skills (that’s you, Tree Stewards!) will be paired with volunteers in small groups to measure and identify street trees on a few city blocks.
This tree inventory work day is part of the Concordia neighborhood’s effort to examine the count, type, size, and health of the local street trees. Once completed, the inventory will help create the Concordia Neighborhood Stewardship Plan, which will include findings of current conditions and recommendations for achieving neighborhood street tree goals. All Tree Stewards are encouraged to take part in the inventory and consider their neighborhood’s interest in a future street tree inventory and Neighborhood Stewardship Plan.
