Free street trees for businesses and apartment buildings!
Do you live or work at a property where you would like to see more trees? Do you own or manage a property where you would like to see more trees? The City of Portland’s Environmental Services Tree Program (ESTP) is offering free street trees and free watering for commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential properties in Portland. This offer also includes concrete removal, if needed, to create new spaces for trees. The deadline to sign up for our next planting is Monday, November 1. However, we will take sign-ups on an ongoing basis for future plantings.
After signing up, each property will receive an assessment for street tree potential. You may opt out at any point prior to tree planting. Owner permission is required for all participating properties. If you have any questions or would like to sign up, please call ESTP at 503-823-2255 or visit our website: www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/treeprojects
We will be bringing lots of new trees to SE to help shade your neighborhoods and clean your air!
