August challenge: the trees of Irvington

We’re staying this week in Irvington, one of Portland’s inner east side neighborhoods.  It feels a bit like living in an Arboretum, with a great diversity of mature trees – there must be fifty different species here, often grouped in short rows along parking strips, each block featuring a different tree than the one before.

The featured image is a paper birch of course, but check out some of the other trees of the Irvington neighborhood too.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    That is a great assortment of trees, and lots of horsechestnuts. 🙂

    Irvington looks like a good place. Interesting houses and loads of different trees all well set into the landscape. Those Eucalypts look like they have some age on them with trunks that size.
