Oregon is a “tree” state. We have diverse forests and beautiful trees. In fact, Oregon has some of the most productive forests and is home to some of the largest trees in the world. We place a high value on the importance that trees play in our quality of life by providing habitat for wildlife, products that we all use, clean air and water and all of the other wonderful things that trees do. For that reason, Oregonians celebrate an entire Arbor Week. We invite you to celebrate the importance of trees in your life.
Five Oregon Communities Receive Arbor Week Grants in 2018
For the past few years, Oregon Community Trees has annually offered no‐match grants for up to $500 to help Oregon Tree Cities to “boost” their Arbor Week celebrations. Seven applications were submitted by Tree City USA designated cities in 2018 requesting a total of $3,070. Committee members agreed that all seven applications satisfied the criteria to award funding and were generally worthy of financial support. The budget for grants was originally limited to $2,000 for the year, but the Executive Committee authorized an increased budget of up to $3,070, our largest budget ever for grants!
