For the ninth consecutive year, the City is pleased to offer a series of free Urban and Community Forestry Workshops for the public. Workshops will be held at City Hall, 380 A Avenue, in Council Chambers on the first floor. Please call 503-635-0290 for free registration.
Tree Protection and Tree Removal Workshop
Thursday, July 30th, 6-7pm
Explore the City’s tree code requirements for tree protection and tree removal permits, including minor and major forest management permits for large forested parcels. This workshop includes an indoor presentation and outdoor demonstration with examples of measuring tree diameter, tree protection fencing, techniques for protecting trees during construction, and more.
On March 17, the City Council tentatively approved Ordinance 2664, amending the Tree Code (LOC 55) to provide a more flexible permit process for large forested parcels that is focused on urban forestry principles rather than individual tree regulations while still maintaining the wooded character of the city.
