CELEBRATE ARBOR WEEK IN LAKE OSWEGO
One of the things you’re bound to notice on all the social isolation walks you’ve been taking in Lake Oswego is the enormous tree canopy that graces out neighborhoods. They’ve been especially beautiful with all the blossoms heralding the arrival of spring.
So it should come as no surprise that for 31 years, the City of Lake Oswego has earned Tree City USA (TCUSA) designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation.
The TCUSA program recognizes cities for demonstrating a strong commitment to managing and caring for trees. Cities earn TCUSA status by meeting four standards: maintaining a tree board (the Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Advisory Board), having a tree ordinance, spending a minimum $2 per capita on urban forest management, and proclaiming and celebrating Arbor Day annually. There are currently 67 TCUSA cities across Oregon. Visit www.arborday.org/programs/treecityusa/ to learn more.
Arbor Day is America’s National Tree Holiday, observed on the last Friday of April to celebrate the role of trees in our lives and to promote tree planting and care. In Lake Oswego, we celebrate an entire Arbor Week during the first full week in April. The City Council has proclaimed April 5-11, 2020 as Lake Oswego Arbor Week.
In light of efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the City has temporarily postponed Arbor Week group activities and tentatively scheduled Urban & Community Forestry Workshops. Keep checking back to my blog and the City’s online community calendar and visit www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning, for events to be announced as they are rescheduled.
Here are some suggestions for ways to celebrate Arbor Week while still observing social distancing guidelines.
- Be a Forest Hero by protecting neighborhood trees from invasive ivy.
The Oswego Lake Watershed Council (OLWC) is encouraging community members to make a difference by removing tree ivy in their neighborhood. Being an “urban forest superhero” is hard work and the City wants to ensure that they recognize the efforts of their community stewards. Here’s what they ask you to do:
- Find out how to remove tree ivy at https://www.oswegowatershed.org/arbor-week-community-ivy-pull/
- Please be sure you have permission from the property owner before you attack that ivy.
- Take a photo of trees that you saved from ivy.
- Send them our way by tagging @oswegolakewcon Facebook or Instagram by using #LOTreeHero. You can also email your pictures to Kat Maloney, Outreach Specialist with OLWC, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the end of the week, the City will post how many trees the community saved from ivy during Arbor Week!
- 2020 Heritage Tree Designations
The Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Advisory Board recently designated two new Heritage Trees, a 68-inch diameter redwood towering 117-feet in height with a 60-foot crown spread at 905 Laurel Street and a 53-inch diameter Douglas-fir soaring 125-feet in height with a 50-foot crown spread at 937 F Avenue. Dedication celebrations will be held at each tree later this year but you can incorporate a few on one of your walks. View the Heritage Tree Guide and browse the online Story Map.
FORESTRY AT THE FARMERS’ MARKET
Saturday, May 16, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Millennium Plaza Park, 200 First Street
Celebrate forestry at the Farmers’ Market on opening day! Activities include Urban & Community Forestry booths and activities for children and adults. Spin the prize wheel, do a craft, watch a tree pruning demonstration, receive a free tree seedling, answer tree trivia, win raffle prizes and learn about stewardship opportunities in your neighborhood.
For the 14th consecutive year, the City will offer a series of free Urban and Community Forestry Workshops for the public. Please call 503-635-0290 or email email@example.com for free registration. Space is limited and preference is given to Lake Oswego residents. Dates are subject to change. This year’s lineup includes:

Refreshments will be provided.
- Native & Invasive Tree Identification Walking Tour

Please wear sturdy shoes and bring your own water.
- Understanding the Tree Code: Removal & Protection Permits
Thursday, August 27, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Lake Oswego City Hall, Council Chambers (380 A Avenue)
Explore the City’s tree code requirements for tree protection and tree removal permits. This workshop includes an indoor presentation to explain the various types of tree removal permits and requirements for tree protection, with a focus on recent tree code amendments, and an outdoor demonstration with examples of measuring tree diameter, tree protection fencing, and techniques for protecting trees during construction.
- Landscaping for Wildlife
Saturday, September 19, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Tryon State Natural Area (Meet in the Classroom)
Birdbaths to mason bees – how to add habitat value to your yard using the wildlife stewardship options from the Backyard Habitat Certification program. Join Friends of Tryon Creek Education Director Gabe Sheoships and Backyard Habitat Certification Program Site Technician Cindy Ellison to learn about creating natural habitat in your own yard space. Consider the benefits of the Backyard Habitat Certification Program, which is conducted in partnership with the Audubon Society of Portland and the Columbia Land Trust, to support urban stewards and their efforts to create and enhance native habitats. This workshop will include an indoor presentation, discussion, and native plant hike.
Other Workshops to be Scheduled This Year:
- Pollinators: Gardening for Bees
