3) Friends of Trees Neighborhood Planting and Mulching Day (1/25)

Join your neighbors for the Overlook/Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Tree Planting on Saturday, January 25. Meet at Peace Lutheran Church, 2201 N Rosa Parks Way. Please arrive by 8:45am to enjoy some hot coffee and breakfast treats. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves and tools, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes. Our neighborhood volunteers will also provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete. Please contact Andy or Jenny at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information. We look forward to seeing you out there!

If you are coming to mulch street trees, please meet at the church! We will travel together to the mulch pile at Interstate Flooring, 4075 N Interstate.

It’s going to be a beautiful day for planting and mulching!
