This page will post important announcements from Urban Forestry and service level updates for permits.
Recognizing our business and community partners' reliance on the services and resources we provide, Urban Forestry is providing advanced notice of our upcoming holiday closures and schedule changes.
Access to Online Pruning Permits will continue to be available through our website: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/trees/pruning.
Due to a scheduled system upgrade, online pruning permits will be unavailable the weekend of October 28-29.
Urban Forestry has made minor updates to the Tree Removal & Replanting Permit Application. Please ALWAYS use the most current version of the application.
Urban Forestry will give a reasonable transitional period between the old and new application. Applications in progress with the old application will be accepted. Please submit new applications on the updated form. The new form can be identified by the footnote at the bottom of the page "updated 10/9/2017."
The Planting and Establishment Fee in Lieu was updated to $325/inch in our FY 18 fee schedule. However, the Preservation Fee in Lieu (per tree), which is calculated using a formula incorporating the Planting and Establishment Fee, was not updated at that time. This has been corrected and is scheduled to be effective November 1st.
|Preservation, Fee in Lieu (per tree):|
|Trees ≥12 and <20 inches diameter||$1,200.00||$1,300.00|
|Trees ≥20 and <36 inches diameter||$2,400.00||$2,600.00|
|Trees ≥36 inches diameter||$300.00 per inch||$325.00 per inch|
