Can accompanying lower trees provide a kind of surrogate taper for a taller tree with no lower branching?
Craig and Rosie Stephens

I think all this wonderful info needs to be presented to the Parks and Natural Resources Advisory Board and the advice heeded in designing and deploying Parks and Natural management unless there is some reason why not. Again this is info that is wonderfully insightful!!

Jack. which group number am I?
Alan Arora
01:22:28
I think you could add “Neglect” to the list as a Human item. i.e. problems (carpenter ants come to mind) that could be cured if caught early. Neglect can be benign such as simply not aware or lacking financial resource to cure.
Cindy Knowles
01:26:47
Great to see the new Mayor and City Council members here! Thank you for caring about LO’s big trees!

Thank you, Kristin. Very nice, informative talk!

Massene Mboup(he/him)

For law makers what advice do you give them to preserve our urban forestry?
Michael Buck

For everyone planting a Douglas-fir, what cubic feet of ground/soil would be needed for maturity?
Dorothy Atwood
01:41:56
If there were one thing you
Mark and Leah Puhlman
01:42:01
Thank you Kristin for that informative talk
Dorothy Atwood
01:42:18
you could recommend, what would it be?
Thomas Bland
01:42:35
Is there a list of acceptable trees for the average homeowner to plant in their yard?? Is this list readily available?
Kate Miller
01:43:30
Is there a building fee such as percent for trees - similar as a percent for the arts anywhere in the country?
' Leslie Morgan
01:43:31
I’m curious if the recommendation of planting certain trees
Jim Newcomer
01:43:46
Kristin, you presented a rosy picture of Lake Oswego’s forest management. And maybe we’re better than most, but what we manage to save here in the way of trees is the result of people struggling against the cutters who want to remove trees for various reasons. It’s always a result of alert and active neighbors who jump in to prevent removing a tree for small reasons.
monica delzeit
01:43:56
Tom, depends on site, other trees present, etc. I look at the portland plant list tree section.
Sandra Peskin
01:44:03
I have the same question about planting re cedar in a mix of oak and ash
Craig and Rosie Stephens
01:44:13
Would you recommend having a Natural Resource Advisory Board as we used to have?
Cindy Knowles
01:44:34
Yes, Jim! And it’s so difficult to stay on top of all the permits
Thomas Bland
01:44:41
Thanks Monica D
Nancy Gronowski
01:45:07
Can you recommend some good UF Management Plans to use as a model?
Betsy Wosko
01:45:29
Does the State have a “mulch in place,” initiative, i.e., allow leaves to be alone on soil surfaces?
Jim Newcomer
01:45:50
Question: what’s the relationship between tree health and taper? I’ve never heard of that before (I came in late, so I may have missed your explanation.)
Kate Miller
01:46:07
I second Jim Newcomers Comment. It has been a losing battle as there are too many hoops and fees to have citizens who care jump through - not resulting in anything at all to save groves and build huge mansions
' Leslie Morgan
01:46:09
Are you still comfortable recommending planting of Doug firs, cedars, etc that require more water than current climate changing would provide?
Cindy Knowles
01:46:25
Do you believe that all urban forests should be managed? Is there ay room for wild” without human interference?
Michael Buck
02:04:01
Very good feedback and input!
Jackie Manz
02:04:44
Thank you all for leadership!
Michael Buck
02:04:48
Cindy, my opinion is that with climate change more invasive species are entering these natural spaces so it will take more management for natives to survive.
Michael Buck
02:10:27
Urban forest depends on positive interactions by natural species—and also by human relationship and familiarity with these interactions. How do we encourage this wonder with our living environment?
Jackie Manz
02:10:57
Well said, Mike!
Kate Miller
02:12:12
please add the Heritage Tree walk idea as it is a way to build awareness
Alan Arora
02:12:38
I also agree with Jim Newcomer’s and Kate Miller’s comments!
Nancy Osborne
02:13:34
Bus tour to the magnificent trees in our community, for senior care centers as a start! After COVID of course.
Cindy Knowles
02:13:37
Great idea, Kate — and maybe more education about Heritage Trees — i.e., how to get them registered.
Kathleen Wiens
02:14:07
Not using herbicides and pesticides
Kathleen Wiens
02:14:38
Stop using gas powered leaf blowers
Betsy Wosko
02:14:50
I echo Kathleen
Betsy Wosko
02:15:15
Mulch in place
Kathleen Wiens
02:15:17
Leaves in place
Nancy Osborne
02:15:29
Yes, down with gas powered leaf blowers
Sandra Peskin
02:16:14
I second Nancy's comment!
Cindy Ellison
02:16:16
Yes Mike, we have to prioritize the weeds. I talked with Megan BigJohn the other day and they are considering stopping treatment of shiny geranium and and Herb Robert
Craig and Rosie Stephens
02:18:00
Bring back compliance with Statewide Land Use Planning Goal 5 which is to be reflected in Development Code.
Craig and Rosie Stephens
02:18:50
The State of the Urban Forest assessment is several years overdue.
Kate Miller
02:18:59
yes to accountability and metrics that are tangible
Michael Buck
02:19:33

Paul Westerberg
02:19:34
For those looking for a good urban forest management plan, see Saratoga Springs, NY. Excellent Plan document
Craig and Rosie Stephens
02:19:36
Agree!!! Lets do it.
Cindy Knowles
02:21:23
Agree with bringing in youth! At the high school level, too
Kat Maloney
02:23:07
We are looking forward to involving students (High school and elementary/middle) with iTree, Soil Your Undies, and more. Stay tuned.
Paul Westerberg
02:24:15
Will this Zoom session and handouts be made available to all participants?
Jack Halsey (he/him)
02:25:08
A recording will be available, as will follow up notes and information! Anyone who signed up or attended the summit will get this email in about a week!
Jackie Manz
02:25:50
Again, I will advocate for an Urban foresty plan goal, the details will follow if we're successful on the goal
Jeff Gudman
02:26:03
Lake Oswego has the highest tree canopy of any city in the Metro area (50% if my memory is accurate. A great accomplishment and something that can be built on.
monica delzeit
02:26:13
thank you, Jackie!
Alan Arora
02:26:23
The presentations/notes from screen-sharing would be very helpful!
