Heritage Trees

Portland’s Heritage Tree program began in 1993 to recognize and preserve trees with special significance to the city by virtue of their size, age, type, or horticulture or history. We follow the selection committee made up of citizens and botanical experts as they assess this year’s nominees, with special concentration on the Zahner family’s southern Catalpa tree.
