Tree History in Lents

Join Portland historian Dave Hedberg and the Lents & Brentwood-Darlington Tree Team to learn about the trees in your community and how history has shaped our urban forest. Using trees as historical anchors, we’ll explore the history of Lents and how trees are inextricably intertwined with the neighborhood. Understanding and valuing trees historically leaves us better equipped to make future decisions and avoid unexpected consequences inherited from our past.  Click here to register or visit their event on Facebook.
