The City of Echo has been Oregon’s Smallest Tree City USA since 1989 and developed the small arboretum across from the Echo School on Gerone and Neely Lane as part of their Urban Forestry Program. Over 100 cultivars grow there in a forest-like setting with a gazebo featuring art by Chris Huffman, local metal artist, birds and nature. A pair of Osprey return to one of the adjacent football field light standards each year to raise their babies, who stand water over the arboretum from their perch in early spring through summer.
