An Oregon White Oak tree located along the Westside Trail behind The Portland Clinic at 15950 Southwest Millikan Way near Southwest Canyon Road has been nominated for the 2022 Urban Forestry Significant Tree Restoration Grant. The grant recipient is chosen by the Urban Forestry Department of Public Works from the city’s historic/significant tree list. The grant was used to perform a one-time maintenance on the tree in February. General Tree Service performed the maintenance with highly skilled tree climbers along with Portland General Electric, which will perform future maintenance and install an informational sign during Arbor Month in April. The tree will also be named Beaverton’s favorite tree.
The Oregon White Oak, Tree #11 in Beaverton’s Historic/Significant tree inventory, lost a few limbs from major wind and ice storms in the last few years. Maintenance of the tree will consist of removal of the downed and over-weighted limbs while performing a comprehensive inspection of the health of the tree. It is important to keep an eye on large trees and perform maintenance as suggested by a professional arborist.
