What is The Grove?
As a city with more than 650,000 people and a few million trees, there are a lot of people who care for a lot of trees!
Portland has an incredible number of community members who not only love trees, but passionately care about our urban forest and dedicate their time to its continued health and growth. At these meetings, we hold space for conversation and creativity, as well as project planning support for seasonal projects, workshops, and events.
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.
