Friends of Trees set to plant in Brooklyn Neighborhood
Residents can order discounted trees now—the earlier the better…
All that good, squishy soil means it’s tree-planting time, and Friends of Trees is getting ready to hit the ground in the Brooklyn neighborhood.
Residents who want to order discounted trees for their street or yard should sign up by November 4 in order to be a part of the December 7 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.
