Arborist Partners

Arborists are specialists in the proper care and maintainance of trees, including planting, pruning, managing pests and disease, providing emergency tree care, and offering expert consultation and advice.  Because Portland Fruit Tree Project is committed to "empowering neighbors to share in the . . . care of city-grown produce," we are pleased to provide our 2017 list of Arborist Partners as a resource to our community.

Each of our Arborist Partners has extensive experience and expertise in tree care, and many are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Check the ISA website if you would like to learn the certification status of an individual arborist. Note that only arborists who possess a current Construction Contractors Board (CCB) license from the State of Oregon may legally work on trees 15' and taller. If the job or consultation advice for which you seek an arborist involves smaller fruit trees, or you desire to integrate understory or edibles into a landscape, Arborist Partners without a CCB license are also highly-qualified and eager to work with you.

In addition to making contributions to the health of our urban forest throughout our city and beyond, our Arborist Partners specifically contribute time, energy, and expertise to Portland Fruit Tree Project.  They teach Tree Care Workshops; serve as leaders at one of our city's Community Orchards; and/or sponsor or donate time, materials, and consultation in a number of significant ways.

When you contact one or more of our Arborist Partners, tell them Portland Fruit Tree Project sent you!
