This past summer you may have noticed your neighbors in bright yellow vests walking our streets looking curiously at trees in the public Right-of-Way. "We're tree inventory volunteers," they might have said. This Saturday Nov. 7 at Mt. Scott Community Center is your chance to find out all about what those volunteers were up to and what this year's Urban Forestry Tree Inventory found out.

Join Urban Forestry and your neighbors in Mt. Scott-Arleta, Powellhurst-Gilbert, and Montavilla among others, to explore the results of the 2015 street tree
inventories and compare findings among neighborhoods. We will also share
the largest trees and most unusual finds. And most importantly, we will
begin creating neighborhood tree plans with your guidance and vision.
Tree teams, volunteers, neighborhood association members, tree stewards,
Friends of Trees coordinators, and neighbors are encouraged to attend,
along with anyone interested in crafting a plan and taking action to
improve the urban forest.
There are two sessions: In the morning it's an informational review of the Inventory Findings and other presentations about trees. This is followed by a lunch for those who will help craft our neighborhood Tree Plan. This is where the fun happens so bring your inspiration and passion for trees, birds, clean air, and clean water, and whatever else you love about trees!
