The district is defined by the rich history of its buildings, bridge, industries and unique geographic location.

    Tree Well Project

    The Tree Well Project is a multi-phase project that will bring a simple, elegant and consistent look to the tree wells that line the St. Johns downtown area.

    PHASE 1:
    Saturday, October 4th, 2014
    This phase will include:

    1. Weeding the tree wells & picking up trash
    2. Laying down a weed suppressant (burlap) & securing it
    3. Installing temporary signage that explains the Tree Well Project & how community members can get involved

    PHASE 2:
    Saturday in March, 2015
    This phase will include:

    1. Planting sustainable & low maintenance plants – check out the pallet of plants that we’ll be using!

    TARGET AREA:
    Tree Wells located on Lombard Street between North Mohawk Ave and North St. Louis Ave. Eventually, we’d love to cover a bigger territory if we can secure additional funding and community volunteers!

    HOW THIS PROJECT IS FUNDED:
    This project is being supported through grant funding and sponsorships. There is no cost to local business owners to participate.

    MAINTENANCE PLAN: 
    St. Johns Main Street will maintain the tree wells through: 1) twice a year service events with University of Portland, and 2) community volunteers who want to help out. We’ll handle the initial watering and everything!

    WANT TO VOLUNTEER?
    Sign up to help water and weed the Tree Wells starting in March 2015. We are going to need lots of hands to keep our downtown area looking beautiful! Email info@stjohnsmainstreet.org.
