2017 Arborists in the Arboretum Volunteers


Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's Arborists in the Arboretum a success!


On Saturday, September 9, Hoyt Arboretum Friends hosted Arborists in the Arboretum, where professional arborists from the Portland metro area and beyond volunteer their time and expertise to care for Hoyt Arboretum's trees.

This year, 103 arborists representing 30 companies volunteered for Arborists in the Arboretum. We want to express our sincere thanks to the generous arborists who keep Hoyt Arboretum growing year after year!

What is Arborists in the Arboretum Day?

Once a year our arborist friends from the Portland metro area gather up their tools and swing up to Hoyt for our annual Arborists in the Arboretum Day. Each arborist spends their precious Saturday lending their experience and expertise in the careful care of our collections. We are thrilled to host this boisterous group of colleagues and are amazed at the skill and accuracy with which they do their work.

While this event is closed to only our arborist volunteers, feel free to stop by and watch them work - from a safe distance - in the collections. They will be visiting us again on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 8 AM until 12 PM.
