Planting Season Timeline

Key dates for street tree planting with us this season are listed below. Check back for updates or contact us with questions at 503-823-2255 or  itreepdx@portlandoregon.gov.

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 cutting and removal will be done in advance of tree planting.

Please visit Our Contractors page to learn more about the companies that we work with to get trees planted and established for you.
