@urbantrees_pdx is local to Oregon and in collaboration with Portland State University’s Ecomerge Project. Although they have a focus on urban naturalization in Oregon, they hope to inspire participation and to inform their viewing publics about the many benefits of trees and plants. The Instagram platform allows @urbantrees_pdx to reach persons, groups, and communities all over the world. It also allows those very publics to find them, especially as the page continues to grow.
@urbantrees_pdx has created the hash tag #urbantrees_pdx to allow their viewing publics to tag their favorite photos of trees & plants in the urban landscape for a chance to be featured on the page. With so many phones having cameras and instant access to Instagram, it makes it easy for potential followers as well as current followers to snap photos of their surrounding landscapes and to tag their photos with #urbantrees_pdx.
The first step in urban naturalization is becoming informed. @urbantrees_pdx strives to make urban naturalization a fun and interactive process. Tag your photos!
