Clone of Oregon City Enhancement Day 2017 - Earth and Arbor Day
Celebrating Earth and Arbor Day - April 29th, 2017
Did you know that Oregon City is an official Tree City USA? Tree City USA status is obtained through the National Arbor Day Foundation and helps to raise awareness about trees and the importance of urban forestry to our quality of life.
As a City, we have made the commitment to invest in our trees for all the benefits they bring, including water quality habitat, property values, energy efficiency, and of course, beautifying Oregon City and connecting our residents with nature.
Oregon City is proud to observe Arbor Day and celebrate our trees and community. Arbor Day was first celebrated in Nebraska on April 10, 1874. Today, it is celebrated in all fifty states. In Oregon, Arbor Day is celebrated the first full week of April.
Please check back for updates on 2017 Arbor Day celebrations and join us in our continued commitment to enhancing Oregon City's urban forest canopy and increasing livability in our neighborhoods.
For more information on trees in Oregon City, please contact the Planning Division at 503-722-3789 or visit us at 221 Molalla Avenue, Suite 200, between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
"The cultivation of flowers and trees is the cultivation of the good,
the beautiful and the ennobling in man, and for one,
I wish to see this culture become universal."
-- J.Sterling Morton, Founder of Arbor Day
