Urban Forest Management Plan

Portland's roadmap to protecting, preserving, restoring, and expanding the urban forest equitably

Urban Forest Management Plan

The Urban Forest Management Plan provides direction for the maintenance and improvement of the urban forest. It also makes recommendations to enhance and improve our City’s urban forest now, and for the future.

The Urban Forest Management Plan coordinates the management and administration of Portland’s urban forest. The plan:

  • Responds to environmental mandates
  • Clarifies confusion about resource management and authority
  • Coordinates the roles of the different agencies and bureaus
  • Addresses problems that remain from the 1995 plan

Portland's prior version of the Urban Forest Management Plan:
