Most Saturdays from January through June, Urban Forestry hosts community workshops on a wide variety of tree topics. Workshops are organized by neighborhood Tree Teams or Tree Stewards and are located throughout the city. Although they often focus on local community concerns, all workshops are open to the public. Tree lovers with all levels of knowledge are welcome to participate. We hope you can join us!

Portland Parks & Recreation Urban Forestry's mission is to manage and ensure Portland's urban forest infrastructure for current and future generations. Portland’s urban forest consists of 236,000 street trees, 1.2 million park trees, and innumerable private property trees. Urban Forestry is involved in managing or regulating all of these trees to differing degrees. Urban Forestry staff issue permits for planting, pruning, and removal of all public and some private trees and are on call 24/7 to respond to tree emergencies.
