Portland tree debate ignites passions in Southwest; Portland, OR

Portland tree debate ignites passions in Southwest:
Southwest residents came out in force to comment on draft proposals to strengthen urban-forest regulations at a meeting last month with the Portland Planning Commission.
Comments at the April 13 meeting emphasized the importance of maintaining a healthy tree canopy, but some citizens worried about the effects of increasing costs to development and city services. As a group that often removes trees to develop property, the Oregon Home Builders Association has been a major critic of the proposals.
