Urban Forest

Winning watercolor, bigleaf maple – Great Out in the Artdoors Race, 2007 Did you know that there are nearly 100,000 trees that line more than 530 miles of streets within the city, providing shade, filtration, and a scenic backdrop? Many thousands of additional trees are found in our developed park system and within the City’s 3,600 acres of natural area parkland. Natural area parks contain an array of native trees with associated understory, forming diverse habitats ranging from closed-canopied forest to open savanna. Our city’s urban forest helps make Eugene one of the most livable cities in the United States.
