Calendar features local trees

Money raised will help fund Forest Grove commissions tree-planting efforts


In this calendar, Miss June is a gorgeous, spreading Oregon White Oak, which you can get — along with 11 other photos of local trees — for just $5 at Forest Grove City Hall.

The 2013 calendar, “A Year in the Grove,” was produced by the city’s Forestry Commission with help from a Community Enhancement Grant, said senior planner Dan Riordan, the city's staff liaison to the commission.

Of the 100 calendars printed, the commission has sold 70, leaving 30 for people who still need a calendar this year. The $350 raised so far ($500 total when the others are sold) will help fund the commission’s tree-planting efforts and annual Arbor Day celebration.

The calendar incorporates photos from the city’s “tour of trees” brochure, as well as fresh shots. The “Goff Oak” pictured in June was one tree commission members unanimously wanted to include, Riordan said.

Other calendar selections include Black Cottonwoods at Fernhill Wetlands (March), plum trees at McMenamins Grand Lodge (August), a Western Dogwood at Rogers Park (November) and a Camperdown Elm at Pacific University (May).

To get your own, bring $5 to City Hall, 1924 Council St., and ask for the tree calendar at the “Planning” counter on the first floor.
