Gresham's Hogan Cedar Trees

Hogan Cedar Trees


  • It is a unique form of Thuja plicata, the western red cedar, which grows naturally only in the Gresham area.

  • It has been recognized nationally as an important plant in horticulture.

  • The Oregon Association of Nurserymen's publication, 1999-2000 Directory and Buyer's Guide listed 13 commercial nursery producers of the Hogan Cedar. These are sold nationally. All of these trees trace their origin to a small pocket of trees in Gresham.

Columbia View Keepers

WENA and the City of Gresham Parks & Recreation Dept believe volunteer participation is an essential part of community development. Through volunteer involvement you can help cultivate and preserve parks, trails, and natural areas in our neighborhoods. With this in mind the Parks Dept is organizing community groups to take ownership in their neighborhood parks.
