The mission of Oregon Community Trees is to promote healthy urban and community forests through leadership, education, awareness, and advocacy.
Our members include aborists, urban planners, community activists, foresters and nurserymen. OCT has no paid staff and relies on the commitment of its members, the cooperation of their employers, and the generousity of our donors to accomplish our mission.
We assist community groups, local governments and schools with our expertise and limited resources. Please use this website to learn about urban forestry and contact our members to partner with your local efforts in promoting, planting and protecting an often overlooked and very valuable resource …our urban and community forests.
In partnership with the Oregon Department of Forestry, we host an annual Urban & Community Forestry Conference…this year’s conference is Thursday, June 2, 2016!
Join us for “Maintaining Magnificence: Tree Preservation in Urban Areas” at Portland’s World Forestry Center.
