Description

The trees of Portland need us to keep an eye on them and watch for signs of declining health, but how can you know what those signs look like? Portland has seen lower annual rainfall in the last three years, and many of our trees are sensitive to drought. When trees have poor access to water, they become stressed and vulnerable to many pests & pathogens that can harm our urban forest. Join PP&R Urban Forestry staff to learn about the insects, fungi and other organisms that currently affect or may be a future threat to the trees of our city.

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.
