Oregon Department of Forestry
Saturday October 30, 2021
10am to 12pm via Zoom
As stewards of our urban forests, you are invited to attend and participate in the third annual Lake Oswego Tree Summit, a free, community-led event to learn more about the trees in our community. Registration is required.
The Tree Summit will include discussions on climate threats to our urban forest and ways we can steward the urban forest from soil to canopy.
Join us in this interactive Tree Summit to find out how trees can be a significant part in addressing climate change, to enhance your arboreal knowledge and learn about science-based stewardship practices to promote the ecological health of our urban forest. The latest LiDAR scan of the city's tree canopy coverage will also be shared by the City of Lake Oswego.
The Tree Summit is sponsored by Oswego Lake Watershed Council and the Lake Oswego Sustainability Network. For more information please contact Allie Molen with the Oswego Lake Watershed Council email@example.com.
