Planting Season Timeline

Key dates for street tree planting with us this season are listed below. Please note that the schedule is approximate and subject to change. Check back for updates or contact us by phone at 503-823-2255 or email with questions.

Understanding the timeline: We take sign ups year-round, but we only plant trees from approximately November-March. We call this the “planting season,” when the weather is cool and wet and trees are most likely to survive transplant. We are unable to provide a specific day on which a property will be planted. Concrete cuts will be made in advance of tree planting.

Please visit Our Contractors page to learn more about the companies who will plant your trees.
