2020 Lake Oswego Tree Summit

Our Precious Urban Forest:
Discovering, Understanding, Enhancing in a Time of Climate Change

On Saturday, November 21, 2020, stewards of our urban forest in Lake Oswego participated in this community-led Zoom event to celebrate trees. This was the second annual Tree Summit.

The keynote speaker was Kristin Ramstad, Manager of the Oregon Urban and Community Forestry Assistance Program for the Oregon Department of Forestry. Breakout groups discussed; What is the importance of the urban forest and what does it mean to you? How would you build your home and/or landscape your existing home to maximize the health of the urban forest for your neighborhood?

The Tree Summit is in partnership with the Oswego Lake Watershed Council and the Lake Oswego Sustainability Network. Thank you to Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District for helping to fund this important work!

Thanks to all who participated in this event to enhance your arboreal knowledge and discover ways to connect with and enhance the ecological health of our urban forest.
