Salem, OR (September 23, 2004)- Oregon Community Trees was formed by urban forestry leaders from around the state in 1991. With the support of the Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon Community Trees provides a forum for members to share ideas, develop new programs, and offer or seek advice and assistance to improve the care of community trees.
Oregon Community Trees produces a newsletter, Oregon CommuniyTree News, hold quarterly and annual meetings, provides leadership in urban forestry planning, and conducts a wide range of community forestry related projects.
