Last Chance to See the Autumn Colors of the Boardman Tree Farm

Boardman Tree Farm is 2.5 hours east of Portland on I-84. I’ve been wanting to go to this autumn wonderland ever since seeing photos on instagram! I heard they sold the tree farm to potato and dairy farmers, and the trees were in the process of being cut down, which meant it’s now or never.

Okay, so maybe you have a little more time. They say the process might take a few years for all the trees to be gone, but you will see that large portions have already been cut down. Photographers who have come here year after year have said it has changed so much.

The trickiest part for us was timing our visit for after the leaves had changed colors but before they’ve fallen off. We drove out there at the beginning of October and the leaves hadn’t turned yet! That was a bummer. The second time we drove out in late October, we joked that with our luck, the leaves will probably be all on the ground, but to our surprise, the leaves were waiting for us in all their golden glory!

  • The type of trees grown here are Pacific Albus, a hybrid of 4 or 5 different poplar trees.
  • When you should go depends year to year, but you can check out fall foliage reports on Oregon Fall Foliage to get a general idea.

  1. I want to see the beautiful trees in October 2018. Do I still have a chance?
    Thanks a lot.
    Love your adventures.

    1. Thank you, Tram. From my knowledge, they’re still there. It’s just slowly being cut away.
