City of Beaverton's Native Plants

Why Go Native?

Brought to you by the City of Beaverton Landscape and Urban Forestry Crew.

Native plants and trees need less water and chemicals than non-native species, are more resistant to pests and diseases, and also attract birds, butterflies and other beneficial wildlife to your yard. Simultaneously, they also reduce erosion and protect water quality. Help keep our rivers clean and watershed healthy by planting a native on your property. The city’s commitment to bringing native species to Beaverton has been growing over many years. To continue promoting native species, the city's Public Works department will highlight a native plant each month for home and business owners to consider when working outdoors. Keep in mind; it is the home and business owners’ responsibility to maintain street trees located within the right-of-way adjacent to their properties.
