    Tree Guidelines

    Trees in Gresham are regulated differently depending on their location, purpose, size, and type.

    The City regulates the cutting of trees by making sure too many aren’t cut down at once, trees are replaced to maintain or add to our tree inventory, and damaged or overgrown trees don’t become a hazard to you and your neighbors.
