Tree For All engages communities large and small in watershed restoration projects throughout the Tualatin River Basin.
It's a community partnership of cities, nonprofits, farmers, volunteers and others who have joined hands (and shovels) to plant native trees and shrubs along the Tualatin River and its tributaries. Streams lined with native vegetation provide cleaner, cooler water, better flood management, and fish and wildlife habitat. It’s good for Mother Nature and for the community!
A decade ago, the Tree For All challenge had a lofty goal of planting 1 million trees in 20 years. We have come a long way in 10 years, and in 2015 were able to plant 2 million in a single year. To date, more than 5.7 million native plants have been installed in the Tualatin watershed. Read more about this accomplishment, and the work ahead, in an October 2015 Outside Voice blog post.
