APANO and Friends of Trees would like to announce an exciting new internship opportunity for our community. In fall of 2019, we will launch a community engagement and urban forestry internship. This internship is designed to engage the Asian Pacific American community into the field of urban forestry and how it impacts residents in the city. Urban Forestry is the care and management of single trees and tree populations in urban settings for the purpose of improving the urban environment. Urban forestry advocates the role of trees as a critical part of the urban infrastructure. Trees provide many benefits to residents including better air quality, better stormwater management, natural stress relievers, and more. However, the tree canopy cover is unequally distributed in the city of Portland across income and racial demographic lines. East Portland has considerably less canopy cover (~16%) when compared to West Portland (~60%) and has considerably more immigrant, refugee, and low-income populations. This internship aims to provide more community engagement in areas with less canopy cover, specifically within the Jade District and the Asian Pacific American community resides to help increase the livability and environment for those residents.
