Dedicating our newest Heritage Tree

We hosted a party on August 8th to dedicate "Cindy" our newest Heritage Tree in Arbor Lodge living at N Dekum and Campbell.

"Cindy" joins a long list of Heritage Trees in the City of Portland. The Urban Forestry Youth Corp affixed her plaque making her official. Heritage Trees:

  • help us all appreciate the value of trees in our landscape
  • remind us it takes time to grow big and strong
  • provide shade
  • exchange many pollutants for clean air, and 
  • provide beauty all around.  
Why is this tree named "Cindy"?  We are not sure, but she is called this by some women who meditate and relax next to her.  Maybe they will come and tell us where she got her name.
