Welcome. Our mission is to create a more diverse, healthy, well-maintained urban canopy in all parts of our Sunnyside neighborhood. We partner with the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association (SNA), Friends of Trees (FOT), and Urban Forestry (Portland Parks and Recreation). Read our Brochure for more information.

Which tree should I plant? If you would like some guidance on what to plant here in Sunnyside, our team has created a series of lists based on what trees would be a good match to our current neighborhood inventory. We strive to add trees that will balance out the range and diversity of species to create a healthier canopy.
Our guides are in .pdf form. They are grouped according to the width of your planting strip – the distance between your sidewalk and curb. The other factor is whether you have high voltage power lines over your planting strip.
Winter Interest Tree Tour
Once the leaves fall it’s a great time to admire the structure of street trees, or admire evergreens during the winter months. Also a great way to preview trees on our recommended list for new street trees.
Gregg Everhart of our S2T2 team has created two interactive maps that highlight trees with strong fall color characteristics. Click on the links below to see the Google Maps based tours:
