Urban Forestry Management Plan, Comprehensive Planning info here

The Urban Forestry Management Plan (Forestry Plan) project will evaluate urban forestry issues in Gresham and then develop a comprehensive, sustainable and integrated approach to tree management on both public and private property. Gresham’s urban forest is a complex system of trees and smaller plants, wildlife, associated organisms, soil, water and air that make up the green infrastructure within the city. While the primary scope of the Forestry Plan will focus on trees that are along streets and trails, around property, on buttes, and within parks and natural areas; it is also understood that woody shrubs and groundcover communities are an integral part of a healthy urban forest.
The Forestry Plan will assess urban forest health that includes urban tree canopy size, location, diversity and number of trees. The project will identify best management practices and effective outreach strategies

Start: 7:00 pm

Beauty and function
Naturescaping is the practice of designing (or redesigning) a landscape so that it reduces water use, stormwater runoff, and pollution without sacrificing splendor. Plus, it saves you time, money, and energy – all while providing a beautiful habitat for birds, wildlife, and you.
Native plants are best because they're adapted to our soil and climate so they need relatively little or no watering, fertilizing, or care once established. They are also less susceptible to common garden pests and diseases, and they attract a variety of native birds and butterflies by providing food and shelter.

Workshop Description
Plan to attend this free workshop, Saturday Nov 14th!
Naturescaping Basics introduces attendees to their connection with the watershed, native plants of the PNW, pollution prevention, and other core concepts of naturescaping.
Workshop participants get to view before and after naturescaping examples, take a field trip to a nearby project, get advice on landscape design and native gardening, network with neighbors, and identify native plants.
And, every participant receives a comprehensive workbook and a native plant to help them get started.
