M ERE are pictured a few street
El scenes showing: Portland's
shade trees in mid-June. To secure
20 times as many equally attract
ive would be only a matter of time
for the photographer. It is the
universal remark of -visitors that
no city on the Pacific Coast Is so
rich in this ornament as Portland.
Handsome as our. shade trees are
today, they are still not at. their
beat. Full foliage -will .not be
reached for three or four weeks to
come, and vernal colorings are
maintained until late in August.
Indeed, some tyitee of the olm keep
putting out fresh green until the
middle of September. Because of
our mild climate and nature's
abundant, evenly distributed and
never-falling supply of water, the
elms, maples, chestnuts, walnuts,
locusts and poplars grow much more
rapidly in the first 20 years than
do the same varieties in the Mid
dle West or on the Atlantic Coast.
So luxuriant ore the elms and ma
ples that branches from oltherlde
of the roadway meet in the center,
forming arches, block after block.
This meeting of the trees may be
seen in every port of the city.
Added to our wealth of verdure
there are now tho incomparably
beautiful roses tho pride of Port
land and the delight of every visitor.
