Partnership Agreement for Tree Planting and Care

Trees manage stormwater and help to protect public health and the environment. Thank you for partnering with the City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services to plant and care for trees on your property. Please read the terms of the partnership agreement and complete the form below.

  • I am entering into this agreement for myself and on behalf of all other owners of the property.
  • I will allow the City’s employees and contractors to access my property to monitor tree establishment and to provide contracted tree care services until Dec. 31, 2027, unless extended by the City.
  • I understand and agree that no compensation will be provided by the City under this partnership.
  • I accept ownership and maintenance responsibility beyond the contracted services provided by the City for all trees planted. The City will provide maintenance advice to help with tree care.
  • I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the City of Portland and its elected officials, employees, and agents harmless from and against all claims, actions, and suits (including attorneys’ fees) to the extent that they arise or result from my negligence or willful misconduct or that of my family members, agents, contractors, or invitees.
  • I understand and agree that the City may take photos of the work completed under this partnership and that those photos may be used in documents or reports on City work.
