Why donate to Save Our Elms? Because the majestic trees that grace Ladd’s Addition provide so much more than shade. The trees improve air quality, reduce carbon dioxide, reduce energy consumption, process storm water, provide a home for wildlife, and of course, make the neighborhood a more pleasant place to walk, ride and live.

What you may not know is our street trees put money in your pocket, too.  A study published by the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Research Station reveals that street trees add to a home’s sale price and reduce its time on market during the sales process. Find out more about the study.

Please consider making a donation to Save Our Elms today. In addition to protecting our fantastic elms, SOE plants new trees in our neighborhood each spring and helps coordinate ongoing care of all trees. If you have not donated before, please join over 400 of your neighbors who have volunteered and contributed to Save Our Elm’s work. If you have donated previously, thank you so much! Your ongoing support is appreciated and makes a difference.

Save Our Elms is a 501c.3 organization registered with the Oregon Secretary of State and Oregon Department of Justice, IRS Tax ID 31-1581092. All donations are 100% tax deductible. ALL donations are used for tree protection and planting efforts.
