Community Invited to Plant Trees, Celebrate Arbor Day with the City of Beaverton on April 7

- Beaverton to be recognized as a Tree City USA for eighteenth year -

BEAVERTON, Ore. – In support of its commitment to increasing the tree canopy and enhancing the community’s quality of life, the city of Beaverton has partnered with Friends of Trees to host a tree planting ceremony and Arbor Day celebration on the Fanno Creek Trail behind the city of Beaverton’s Operations Center (9600 SW Allen Boulevard) on Saturday, April 7 at 9 a.m. 

“This Arbor Day celebration is just one example of some of the great ways we can come together to enhance the livability and quality of our community,” said Mayor Doyle. “I encourage our citizens to help the environment by planting native trees or shrubs.” 

During the ceremony, the City of Beaverton will be recognized as a Tree City USA for the eighteenth year by the National Arbor Day Foundation. Mayor Doyle and the Beaverton City Council will be given a Tree City USA flag, plaque and community signs showing the city’s years of participation.

Following the ceremony, community members will be invited to help plant trees along the Fanno Creek Trail located behind the Beaverton Operations Center. Forty trees will be planted, which include 20 Doug Fir, 15 Western Red Cedar and five Oregon Oaks. Tree planting is a national tradition that started with the first Arbor Day on April 10, 1872. This is the sixth year the city of Beaverton has partnered with Friends of Trees. 

In order to be recognized as a Tree City USA, communities must meet four requirements: 

1. have a designated tree board, provide a forestry professional or city department that works towards the care of trees in the community 

2. maintain a tree-care ordinance

3. maintain an active forestry program

4. host an Arbor Day celebration

Other factors for Beaverton’s selection for the award include tree planting, tree preservation, disease management and pruning. “Trees add to the beauty of our community and well-being of our environment,” said Pat Hoff, Lead Arborist. “They live in every neighborhood, park and business, and are incorporated into every new project or development planned in Beaverton.” 

Tree planting can have positive, long-lasting environmental effects. Trees are known to remove carbon dioxide generated by automobiles from the air and the cost of tree planting is relatively low. 

Beaverton is one of the few cities in Oregon that maintains a full-time tree maintenance program and employs two full-time arborists. There are more than 28,700 street trees in Beaverton and 6,564 on city-owned property. New trees are added each year to enhance the quality of neighborhood environments.

Additional volunteers are needed for this event. If you would like to donate your time or would like more information, please contact Pat Hoff at 503-526-2237. In honor of Arbor Day, those who attend and help plant trees will be given a small, native tree or shrub at the end of the event.
