Reporting After Hour Tree Complaints

Due to citywide budget cuts the Bureau of Environmental Services is no longer able to support the after hours tree violation hotline. If you suspect a tree cutting violation is taking place during non-standard business hours between 5 PM – 7 AM Monday through Friday and all hours on Saturday and Sunday, document the activity and report the complaint to one of the city departments listed below.  Violations will be received the next business day and, if verified, will receive enforcement action including potential civil penalties.  Suspected tree violations must be reported as follows:

Suspected tree violations on private property

Suspected tree violations in the public right-of-way or heritage tree

Urban Forestry (503) 823-4489.
