Tree City USA

This year is the 32nd year that Lake Oswego has maintained the designation of “Tree City USA”. To have this designation a city must maintain four standards: have a Tree Board that brings together Parks, Recreation, and a Natural Resources Advisory Board; have a tree ordinance; spend a minimum of $2 per capita on urban forest management; and proclaim and celebrate Arbor Day annually.

Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, and April is Arbor Month. There are numerous ways that Lake Oswego is celebrating.

Tree Pruning Workshop

April 24th, 10am to 12pm, at the Pavilion at Foothills Park. Due to covid, attendance is limited and pre-registration is required. Pruning and maintaining trees is crucial, not just for the health of the tree, but truly for the safety of the home. Our big ice storm last month was a perfect example. Lake Oswego has lots and lots of trees. That ice storm took down so many limbs and many of those limbs were distructive to property, not to mention the power outages. At my home, we had an arborist clean up our trees about 5 years ago. I have 5 huge trees on my property. In the ice storm, not one limb came down. Not one. To register for this workshop telephone 503-635-0290 or email planning@lakeoswego.city. The class is free

Lake Grove Swim Park

Gnomes in Nature

Gnomes are being hidden at three parks: Foothills, River Run, and Stevens Meadows. The gnomes have names: Blossom, Greenie, and Oak. Between now and October get out to enjoy the parks and when you find a gnome, take your picture with the gnome and post it to social media using the hashtag #LOparksgnomes. Each time you post this hashtag you will be entered into a contest to win your very own gnome. Did you know that LO has over 460 acres of natural park areas? Visit lo-stewardship.org for park locations, gnome clues, and to learn more about each gnome.

Heritage Trees

Lake Oswego has annually been designating trees as “Heritage Trees” for 40 years. They are magnificent and each year when a tree is designated I like to go and see it. Most are on private property, so viewing them is done from the street, but wow, they are gorgeous. This years tree is a 55′ tall Japanese Zelkova that measures 6′ 10″ in circumference and has a crown with a 60′ spread. It is located at 3209 Lake Grove Blvd. To see a complete list of the Heritage Trees and where they are located, visit lakeoswego.city/planning/heritage-tree-program.

I honestly think that people move to Oregon, not just Lake Oswego, because they love the natural beauty and being in the outdoors. We’re now moving into the time of year when going outside is such a pleasure! I’m proud that my city, Lake Oswego, knows this and values its natural resources. Three cheers for LO and Tree City USA!

Lake Oswego Has Two New Parks

The livability of LO is just outstanding and it just go even better. We now have two brand new parks!.

Iron Mountain Park

Located on Iron Mountain Blvd right by The Hunt, this is a 51 acre park. There is plenty of parking, a covered picnic area, a play area for kids, and rest rooms. It’s beautifully landscaped using native species and with great care to preserve a wetlands that is part of the park. I can see spending summer evening picnicing and taking my Grandchildren to play and run around.

I think the thing I am most excited about is that the park serves as a trail for the Iron Hertage trail. There has long been a terrific trail that makes use of the old rail line that the iron was transported on from the mine near the top of Iron Mountain and down to where the ore was loaded into barges, and barged across the lake to find its final destination at the iron furnace in what is now George Rogers Park.

The Iron Heritage trail is a 3.4 mile loop that connects the new park to the Iron Mountain trail, then along several quiet residential streets to Springbook Park and then back to Iron Mountain Park. For a trail map click here.

Woodmont Natural Park

Located near the intersection of Atwater and Knaus Roads, this 6.8 acre park is lovely. There is a gravel path that meanders through the park. I’m not certain how long the path is, but I think it is likely close to half a mile or so. There is extensive native landscaping and places for picnicing. This park does not have a play structure for children, but it does have restrooms.

Quality of life is just super important to me and a key component of how I have chosen the community that I live in. I know I rave about how much I like LO, but it truly does keep getting better and better. These two new parks are a great addition!

As always, thanks for reading the blotter.

Let’s Talk Trees

Trees have been the focus of my attention lately. This is because two weeks ago Lake Oswego had a big ice storm and a neighbors unkept trees dropped limbs onto power lines that caused a power outage at my house. It lasted 3 days. Of course this was not uncommon. At one point Portland Gas and Electric had power outages at over 300,000 homes in the metro area. Many were without power for longer than 3 days, so my intention here is not to complain about my personal experience. Instead, it has me thinking about the importance of paying attention to the trees in your yard.

Get them inspected

When buying a home, if the house has large trees in the yard, get them inspected. Most home inspectors only inspect the house itself. They don’t inspect the trees. A good home inspector will make the suggestion that you get the trees inspected, but many don’t. You should not take it for granted that trees are trees and no big deal. In particular, are any of the trees unhealthy? Are any of the trees unstable? Removing a big tree can be expensive. If this is something that can be learned up front, before you buy the house, it is something that can be negotiated as part of the purchase.

Trees need to be maintained

Once you own a home, maintain your trees by hiring an arborist every five years of so to go through your trees and take out dead limbs and prune to maintain health. My husband and I have done this. We have four HUGE fir tress and one HUGE English walnut tree. When we first bought our home I would occassionally sleep downstairs, not in my bedroom, if there was a big wind storm. Then one day while gardening, out of the blue, a big limb came down not too far from where I was standing. There’s a reason that these limbs are called widow makers. They are big and heavy and could really hurt a person. This was my wake up call that it was time to become friends with an arborist.

Since we have had our trees cleaned up, not one big limb has randomly fallen in our yard and no limbs have fallen during wind or ice storms. It is money well spent and gives tremendous peace of mind.

This brings me back to the recent ice storm. How I wish my neighbor was taking better care of his/her trees! Be a good neighbor and be a responsible tree owner.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Feel free to reach out to either Linda or myself if you have any questions about real estate and home ownership.

Market Activity February 15-22, 2021

I think that the fact that our current real estate market is lacking inventory is pretty well known. There are many more buyers trying to buy homes than there are homes for sale. Preparing this market activity report a first has happened. Last week in Lake Oswego there was just one new listing. In all of the many years that Linda and I have been writing the blotter, I don’t recall that this has happened before. Hopefully it’s just a fluke and in the coming weeks the inventory will start to build up to meet the spring demand. Last week there were also 12 properties that accepted offers and went into pending status, as well as 18 closed/sold houses.

Market Activity Jan 18-24, 2021

The real estate market is really heating up. Buyers are out in hordes wanting to take advantage of the lowest interest rates in decades. They have gotten themselves pre-approved and are ready to go. The issue is, inventory is incredibly low. For every property that comes on the market, there are half a dozen buyers ready to buy. The result? Houses are selling fast, often with multiple offers. It is very much a sellers market. With multiple offers houses are frequently selling at or over the list price. So yes, this late winter and spring market truly is an amazing time to sell your house.

In Lake Oswego last week we had 6 properties come onto the market, 12 move into pending status with an accepted offer, and 16 closed sales.

See below for RMLS data and an explanation of this chart.

Cool Stuff is Happening at the Library!

I say cool stuff is happening at the library, but in the time of Covid it is happening via zoom and on line. I really have to give a round of applause to the staff at the library because they have come up with some awesome options to keep readers engaged. At a time when we are spending more time at home, and really needing options to keep us busy, these programs are pretty terrific.

Multicultural Children’s Book Day

Watch videos of members of the community reading children’s books in different languages. Get recommendations for books to read that will educate about different cultures. This program honors the similarities and differences that make our community shine. For more information visit www.lakeoswego.city/library/mcbd.

A Bookish Affair

This is a book group that is devoted to romance novels. They read one book per month. To get involved you can email Shannon Dickinson at sdickinson@lakeoswego.city. You can also download the podcast at “A Bookish Affair” from all of the usual places that podcasts are found.

Cook The Books Book Group

This book group is all about food! It meets via zoom on Tuesdays at 4pm. Each week features a new theme. Folks get together to share recipes and talk about food. It’s pretty much a big recipe exchange. You can register at www.lakeoswego.city/library/cook-books-virtual-book-group where you’ll get a meeting link and a password.

LOPL Trivia

Join librarians for a family-friendly virtual game of trivia. Thursdays at 7pm. This sounds like a lot of fun! Registration is required. Go to www.lakeoswego.city/library/remote.

Personalized Reading Recommendations

Fill out a reading profile and librarians will use your answers to create a customized reading list just for you. For adults, go to www.lakeoswego.city/library/webforms/ten-ten-personalized-recommendations. For kids, go to www.lakeoswego.city/kids/you-need-read-weve-got-books. All books are loaned via curbside pickup and are quarantined before being loaned out again.

Lake Oswego Reads

Our library is just such a tremendous resource to our city! With all of this going on, I want to end this post by pointing out the Lake Oswego Reads is happenning right now. Citywide, the community is reading Caste by Isabel Wilkerson. There are many events associated with LO Reads. Find details at www.ci.oswego.or.us/loreads.

Happy Reading!
