The Portland Plan releases plans for the city's Urban Forest - Portland, OR

Urban Forest:
Portland’s existing tree canopy covers about 26% of Portland’s land area. The current goal is to have trees cover at least 33% of the city. The tree canopy is most dense in natural areas, such as Forest Park, other parts of the West Hills, on and around Powell Butte and other eastside buttes, and parts of Pleasant Valley in the southeast. Areas with the most concentrated urban development, particularly the Central City, and also industrial areas have the sparsest canopy.
