Idea for your website

Asked April 20, 2019, 3:18 PM EDT

I work as a reference librarian at Multnomah County Library and I had a patron come in to ask what type of tree we had in our parking lot that was shedding little white flowers. My first thought was to google your extension and search by trees; however, this proved very difficult indeed. I think it would be great if you had a tree identification page, or maybe I'm missing it? It would be ideal for a What's in Bloom Now link or other such useful resource. Thanks!

Thank you for your comments. Since the OSU Extension system includes all 36 counties, each of which has a different website, this might be a challenge! But you can help patrons find such a resource through OSU here: http://oregonstate.edu/dept/ldplants/plant_ident/plant/search/type/2 Another resource for other species is this one: https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/detail/or/plantsanimals/?cid=nrcs142p2_045949 And another valuable is this: https://uswildflowers.com/stateref.php?State=OR Thank you for providing assistance to our community!
