UPDATE...Please Read! Unfortunately, our largest partner in this fundraiser is unable to donate fruit trees this year. Fruit trees, like all agricultural crops, are susceptible to seasonal pressures such as weather, demand, and other market forces. For this year’s event, we only have approximately 250 fruit trees, which is about 25% of what we normally have. We will, however, have a selection of young native plant options, including edible groundcovers, pollinators, shrubs, and a smattering of other options in limited quantities. Some larger stock shade trees will also be available for purchase at wholesale cost. We understand you’re disappointed - every year this event engages hundreds of fruit and tree lovers, adds to the area’s tree canopy, and encourages people to grow their own food. We love this event and are doing our best to provide alternatives. Because of this change in inventory, we need to limit attendees to 1 fruit tree and 2 native plants, while supplies last. We encourage you to set your expectations accordingly; if you are traveling to Portland for this event, please use this updated information to inform whether it’s worth a special trip. Many thanks for your understanding and support, Friends of Trees http://www.facebook.com/events/976148895800823/

We'll be meeting at the Friends of Trees office, sorting into planting crews, and heading out to plant trees around the neighborhoods! Tree planters on bikes encouraged to join a bicycling tree planting crew! Visit www.friendsoftrees.org/bike for more info. Please arrive at Friends of Trees by 8:45am to enjoy some hot coffee and breakfast treats. The planting starts promptly at 9:00am. We provide gloves and tools, so all you need to do is show up dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy shoes. Our neighborhood volunteers will also provide a potluck lunch for all volunteers after the planting is complete! We look forward to seeing you out there! http://www.facebook.com/events/1505239579782838/

Apples, plums, pears... are you dreaming of a bountiful fruit harvest from your very own yard?

We will have a large selection of bare root stock fruit trees for a $5 suggested donation, and shade tree stock will be sold at wholesale prices. Last year we sold out, but we are bringing more trees this year! Come early for the best selection. Gates will open an hour early at 9 a.m. for members and leadership volunteers.
