Backfill: To return the soil to a planting area from which it was originally dug. Bare-root seedling: A tree ready for transplanting that has had the soil removed from around its roots. Biofuels: The product of biomass conversion; can be used directly to provide heat or electricity. Biomass: In terms of energy production, biomass is wood and forest residues, crops and other plants, and animal manure.

Dutch Elm Disease Benefits of an Urban Forest What is the Urban Forest? The 'urban forest' refers to all vegetation, both public and private, which is found growing in cities, towns, and communities throughout America. Portland is known for its large expanse of trees growing along streets and streams, in parks and natural areas, and in neighborhoods and residential yards. Shortly after Portland became incorporated in 1851, early pioneers began planting trees by the thousands. The first parks, Chapman and Lownsdale Squares and the Park Blocks, were set aside in 1852. In 1871, the Park Blocks were planted with hundreds of American elms, which add considerable beauty and shade to downtown. Today, thousands of trees and almost 10,000 acres of parks grace our city. Thanks to the ongoing efforts of city administrators and local citizens, these urban forest jewels continue to contribute to Portland's well-being. But, to assure the future existence of our urban forest, everyone must work collectively to protect and enhance these vital assets. Learning how to properly plant, care for and preserve your own trees is the most effective action any citizen can take.

Morris Arboretum
Urban Forestry and Arboriculture Program

under contrstuction
Photo by Steven Goldblatt T he urban forest is the interaction of people and plants wherever they coexist. At one time a deep, old hardwood forest covered the eastern seaboard of the United States. The development of our cities and suburban communities dramatically altered this landscape. In its place, a new, urban forest has grown with cities which includes the dogwoods and crab apples in our backyard gardens as well as the street side plantings of maples and oaks and the expanses of our city parks. These small pockets of green dramatically impact our lifestyle by cleaning our air and our water and giving our communities a sense of pride, while cooling our homes in the summer. Trees and plants in our most urbanized and degraded neighborhoods produce a sense of community and vitality for all residents.
The Urban Forestry and Arboriculture Program was created to use the Arboretum's public garden, plant collections, and the expertise of staff to:
  • Educate a broad audience about the essential role plants play in the quality of our lives
