2019 Heritage Tree Ride

Description

This ride starts at Lents Park east parking lot. Come join us as we visit 9 of Portland’s approximately 300 Heritage Trees – some we’ve visited before, some are new to the ride. Heritage Trees are trees that have been formally recognized by City Council for their unique size, age, historical or horticultural significance. Once accepted by Council, Heritage Trees are designated with a small plaque and listed in the Heritage Tree database at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/41049 There are over 300 Heritage Trees throughout Portland, and new trees are added each year. Heritage Trees are protected by City Code; once designated, no Heritage Tree can be removed without the consent of the Urban Forestry Commission and the Portland City Council. For more information about this program visit Heritage Trees of Portland at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/40280 Our ride will start in Lents park and take us through SE Portland, Woodstock, and Sellwood, with a return via the Springwater Trail and the 205 bike path. We’ll stop at Cartlandia, at 82nd and Springwater Trail, on the return. A map will be provided at the start.
