Community Reviews

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends of Trees in Portland, Oregon engages adult community members and youth in their own neighborhoods, trains them to train leaders in other neighborhoods, facilitates planting of street trees, and does other valuable restoration work in the metropolitan area.

This is cost effective for the city, reduces storm water, reduces homeowner cooling costs, and has spillover effects through ongoing civic engagement of community members in other areas.

FOT also sponsors, organizes and otherwise supports educational events and speakers on related topics.

It's amazing how something as simple as planting trees has so many economic and social benefits. Top 5 best non-profits in the city for sure.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the ED a decent haircut. JK. They could probably do more with more funding.

I've been involved with Friends of Trees, off and on, since its founding in 1989. I still volunteer once or twice a year, despite my advancing age and physical limitations. I'm always impressed with how well organized the planting events are. Planting of trees is the most visible benefit of their work, but the bringing together of people in the neighborhood is even more important.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My neighbor added trees to her yard.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.
