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 220,000 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.
Portland's trees provide numerous services to the city, such as stormwater interception, reduced air pollution, urban heat island mitigation, and wildlife habitat.
Urban Forestry hosts community events and workshops on a wide variety of tree topics.
