Street of Trees
The Beaverton Street of Trees Tour
The Street of Trees is an informative tour consisting of trees the City of Beaverton recommends for use along city streets, and may be used as a tool in learning some of the many tree characteristics and requirements necessary to make the best choice when determining which tree to plant.
Even though a tree is on the recommended list, it may not be suitable for all sites and uses. Carefully study the site to properly match the tree with the site, or consult with the Operations Urban Forestry Division for assistance in making your determination. Remember: Plant the right tree in the right place.
Not all of Beaverton's recommended street trees are represented on this tour. Some of the trees listed are new to Beaverton's approved street tree list, while others are reliable old standbys. As we plant these trees, and as the community grows and develops, some trees now on the list may not be recommended in the future, and new trees that prove promising may be added.
It is recommended to take the Street of Trees tour in person in order to get the full appreciation for a tree's characteristics. The tour begins outside of the Griffith Park Building (Currently Court and formally City Hall and Police Department) located at 4755 SW Griffith Dr. Beaverton, OR 97005.
Parking is available in the surface parking lot outside the Griffith Park Building or along Griffith Dr.
