Have you ever found yourself dodging that wayward branch at the last moment while walking or riding around the neighborhood? You can thank your neighbors when they finally get around to pruning those low-hanging branches - hopefully soon! The City will train and assist neighborhood volunteers (could be You) to prune Mt. Scott-Arleta’s street trees this summer (could be your tree).
At least two sessions are scheduled from 7-9pm: June 27 at the SE corner of Mt. Scott Park, and July 11 at Arleta School. Contact portlandearthcare (at) gmail.com if you know about needy overgrown trees or would like to help. A neighborhood "tree friend" is needed for the area south of Harold and west of 70th Ave to coordinate stewardship efforts for a possible third event. Could this be you?
