9/08/2020 Update: Wind Storm and Tree Emergencies

The current wind storm has caused a high volume of tree emergencies across the city.  Urban Forestry staff are working quickly to respond and, as a result, non-emergency intake processing may experience delays.

To report trees or limbs down and blocking a public street, please call 503-823-TREE(8733) and select Option 1. Tree emergency response is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If you are seeking a retroactive permit, you must provide photographic evidence of the danger to structure or public and submit photos with a retroactive permit application within 7 days of the tree work.  For information on retroactive emergency removals, please see our website:
