Tree for All is a community partnership of cities, nonprofits, farmers, volunteers...
...and others who have joined hands (and shovels) to plant native trees and shrubs along the Tualatin River and its tributaries.
Streams lined with native vegetation provide cleaner, cooler water, better flood management, and fish and wildlife habitat. It’s good for Mother Nature and good for our community.
In less than a decade, Tree for All partners exceeded their original, twenty-year goal.
In 2014-15, we hoped to plant one million trees and shrubs in a single planting season—and we more than doubled that lofty total. Watch the video below to learn more.
Questions that help orient our development:
- How do we act on a watershed scale that is truly meaningful?
- How do we integrate multiple water quality and ecological needs into an effective and focused community restoration program?
- How do we ensure that 80 cents of every dollar goes directly to implementing enhancement projects on the ground?
- How do we weave existing local, state and federal resources together to maximize water quality and ecological outcomes?
- How do we ensure that restoration sites are maintained over time?
