Do you know what's new with Portland trees? Here's a nutshell update, which is what we'll be exploring in depth at the meeting:
The Portland Tree Code, something that has been in preparation for several years, became effective on January 2, 2015. It has new provisions for removing and planting trees, both in public spaces such as between the sidewalk and the curb and on private property. The new code introduces a uniform system of permitting and encourages more canopy cover in the city, which is deficient in trees which provide shade. There are a variety of economic, environmental and energy benefits from getting the right tree planted in the right place.
Please make plans to attend the meeting and bring your friends and neighbors!!!
