Are you interested in nominating a particular tree or grove of trees in Oregon for our Heritage Tree Program?
Applications are reviewed by the Oregon Heritage Tree Committee in January, July, and October of each year. Heritage Tree honorees will be announced at a statewide dedication ceremony held during Arbor Week (the first full week in April) of the year following designation (e.g. a tree designated in December 2016 would be announced publicly in April 2017). The Heritage Tree Program provides a 9” x 12” plaque mounted on a single-leg pedestal for placement near the honored tree.
