Trees provide essential services for all Portlanders. Planting trees in yards keeps us and our homes cool during the hottest months and helps collect storm water during the winter. They also clean the air, buffer noise, reduce crime and improve our health. On top of all of this, they provide year round beauty.
We offer a variety of trees ranging from medium to large in size and include native, conifer, evergreen, and deciduous species. All trees should fit in a car/truck, grocery cart or make a nice companion on the bus! When choosing a species, please consider the available space in your yard for roots and branches as well as how much sun your yard gets each day.
Want help choosing a which tree for your yard or have questions about planting location? Come to our Tree Selection Workshop on Sept 18: Click Here to Register!
Yard trees should be planted a minimum of 10 feet from any side of your house, two feet from property lines or five feet from a driveway or water meter. For advice on where in your yard to plant your tree, check out Right Tree, Right Place from the Arbor Day Foundation.
Planting and Care
We will be demonstrating how to plant a tree at the giveaway so you know exactly how to plant your container tree. We’ll send you home with a free watering bucket filled with mulch and educational materials that will reinforce our demonstration to help you properly care for your tree. You can also download and print the guide on Yard Tree Planting and Care.
