City to consider tree canopy project; put February 2, 2011 hearing on your calendars - Portland, OR

City to consider tree canopy project | Portland Business Journal:
The Portland City Council is taking on a project to consolidate the rules for city trees and boost the city’s tree canopy by 100 acres or more every year.

The council will hold a hearing on its tree project at 6 p.m. Feb. 2 at City Hall, 1221 S.W. Fourth Ave.

The project aims to create a cohesive strategy to promote a healthy urban forest, achieved in part by consolidating regulations under a single new tree code, standardizing the city’s tree permit system and promoting preservation.
