What good things grow on trees?
Conservation: Tree shade can cut your energy costs by 35% during the summer. Health: Trees clean our air, water, and soil. A new U.S. Forest Service study in Portland even links tree-lined neighborhoods with healthy newborns.
Community: Tree-lined streets calm and slow traffic. This creates safer neighborhoods and happier people. And money even grows on trees! Planting trees on your property can add $7,000 to the value of your home.
Funding for the plantings comes from Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services and the following sponsors: Jan. 29 in Arbor Lodge and Overlook—Adidas and Portland General Electric; Feb. 12 in Boise, Eliot, Humboldt, and King—Safeway; Feb. 19 in Cathedral Park, St. Johns, and University Park—The Oregonian; March 12 in Alameda, Irvington, Sabin, and Grant Park—Backyard Bird Shop; and March 19 in Beaumont-Wilshire, Cully, and Roseway—Port of Portland. Since 1989, Friends of Trees has planted more than 400,000 trees and native plants in the Portland-metro area. Find your tree at www.FriendsofTrees.org.
