Save the Eastmoreland Trees Concert
SE 36th and Martins Ave
Portland, Oregon 97202
Eastmoreland residents will host a “Save the Giants Jam,” a concert to fundraise to save three large sequoia trees in their neighborhood from removal. Local artists will perform from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, July 6 at the lot, 3790 S.E. Martins St.
The neighbors are hoping to raise nearly $1 million to buy the lot from a developer who plans to chop the 150-year-old trees down. The Tribune reported last week how neighbors came to an agreement with Vic Remmers of Everett Custom Homes to hold off on cutting down the trees, by giving Remmers a $50,000 deposit and agreeing to a total of $900,000 being paid by July 6.
Everett Custom Homes had planned to cut down the trees June 23, prior to neighbors protesting outside the lot and Remmers striking a deal with Robert McCullough, president of the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association. Neighbors currently have a Go Fund Me campaign that has raised $5,670 as of Wednesday morning.
Elizabeth Leach, who lives next door to the tree lot, is leading the fundraising efforts. She says they are currently searching for a nonprofit group to accept the funds they raise to buy the lot. Leach says if the group is able to raise the necessary funds, they will turn the space into a community park.
Local musician Alexa Wiley is headlining Monday's event, with performances also from Jim Brunberg and Ben Landsverk, Paul Brainard and Friends, Grant Remington, Matthew Zeltzer and Bert Sperling.
