We recently received permission from City of Portland to have two sickly trees removed from the Sabin Triangle at NE 15th and Prescott. As part of that agreement, we need to plant two new trees in a parking strip somewhere in the neighborhood. A local nursery has agreed to donate two gorgeous paperbark maples that meet City criteria of 2” in diameter. According to the City Arborist, paperbark maples need at least a 3-foot wide planting strip to thrive. They also need to be planted by the end of April to ensure they have time to acclimate before the weather gets hot.
If you are interested in having one or both of these trees for your parking strip, please contact Gwenn Baldwin at email@example.com by April 20. A tree inspector will come out and inspect your site and mark the curb for planting locations. Assuming there are no issues with power lines or the planting site, a permit will be issued and we can help get the trees in the ground.
