Why is Oregon City revising its Street Tree code?
  • To help prevent damage to public infrastructure such as:
    • Sidewalks
    • Streets
    • Utilities
  • To help prevent mobility hazards like sidewalk buckling due to street tree root encroachment.
  • To help reduce cost barriers to property owners removing hazardous or potentially hazardous street trees that were planted in strips 3 feet wide or less.
  • To help clarify other minor omissions and inconsistencies in the code.
